Slanted Studios partnered with the New York City Ballet to create an animated promotional video for their 2018 production of Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. To create a montage of the star-crossed lovers’ most memorable moments, we drew inspiration from the painting style of Per Kirkeby, who also designed the set and costumes for the ballet. This set our stage for paint strokes and splashes of color to do their own dance, capturing the themes of youthful optimism and betrayal from the eternal romantic tale.
