Animating The Mundane

2D Animation

Animating The Mundane is a short 2D animation that tells a romantic story between Mug and Chamomile Camille where they fall in love on first sight.


The brief required to conceptualise, write, storyboard, design and produce a short animated piece inspired by a mundane act while considering a film genre. The mundane act was a combination of two sentences selected from a raffle, which were “a small mug of tea” and “with a huge tea bag” and it had to be of a romantic genre. The decision was made to tackle the brief with humour and light-heartedness and produce an animation that anyone could enjoy and find funny and memorable.
