'Hello, I Like You': Finding Joy in Everyday Details

A short film transforms simple, inanimate objects into an abstract, playful depiction of the world that surrounds us

I'm deeply fascinated by the art and science of happiness, its origin and sources, and the secret to its attainment. Hello, I Like You is a lovely short film by Brooklyn motion graphics outfit Mixtape Club, exploring happiness in an abstract way through the art of finding joy in everyday details.

The project was commissioned for the recent F5 motion graphics unconference.

The film feels like the motion graphics version of the lovely Everything Is Going To Be OK—a simple, and powerful in its simplicity, reminder that life is as good as we allow it to be.
