Animated Foggy Window Drawings

Director Hoku Uchiyama teamed up with band Evelyn Evelyn for their old timey song, “Have You Seen My Sister Evelyn,” to create a series of complementary animations on foggy windows. Drawings traced on fogged glass narrate the song performed by fictional conjoined twin sisters, both named Evelyn (musicians Amanda Palmer and Jason Webley). The animation looks simple, but the director had a hard time capturing condensation forming on the glass properly. Instead of relying on Mother Nature, Uchiyama used water and a dulling spray to create a foggy look. He then digitally added finger oils, moving water, and a warped perspective so objects behind the glass appeared true to life. Check out the process in action past the break.
