Production studio Prominent Figures used over 12,000 pieces of paper to animate Josh Ritter’s music video, “Love Is Making Its Way Back Home.” It was filmed frame-by-frame the old school way. “We had to determine ahead of time which images to cut as positives or negatives, how to anchor the cutouts to the paper frame that surrounds it so the pieces wouldn’t fall out, as well as a host of other problems. It was definitely the most labor intensive video we’ve been a part of,”  states Sam Cohen, concept designer.
