Apple Music — “And Then”


︎︎︎SU/FA2018 c/o ROSEWOOD Creative | ︎Conceptual Development, 2D Animation, Content Production & Talent Directing


Apple Music wanted a concept to promote Independent Artists that would require the least amount of talent involvement, yet make the biggest impact. And Then was born — the social-first animated series that turns voice memos into beautifully bizarre & fantastical cartoons (in less than a week).

The challenge was simple (but hard)


How do you promote new artists’ album releases from around the world, on a weekly basis, without having their presence on set?


The solution: animated stories, reinvented.


1. We send our booked and busy artists a series of culturally-relevant,
strategically-fantastical questions.



2. Artists record their answers via Voice Memo (listen below)



3. Our group of talented storyboard artists, animators, and editors
craft together a full-animated cartoons in less than a week.






Each illustrative styles, animation, and color schemes are bespoke to our artists’ genres, origins, and languages.
