Julian Glander is the latest animator to take part in the California Inspires Me series put together by Google Play and California Sunday magazine. This time it’s the turn of actor, director and scholar James Franco and the film sees him talk about selling stolen cologne as a teenager, getting caught doing graffiti and how all that rebellion eventually put him on the path to creativity and finding happiness.
Animated in Julian’s signature style with happy, humorous characters and a palette of pastel shades, the film fits perfectly with James’ musings on his colourful California life. Beautifully imagined, Julian’s film is yet another example of the fantastic work the Pittsburgh-based animator has been churning out this year.
