EVERYTHING IS HANDMADE
All the artwork was handmade in Brooklyn by a dedicated team of artists and craftspeople. Over 18 months of designing and building using cardboard, paint and magic markers (among other materials!) went into creating our miniature world of Hollywood. Then everything was photographed and animated to create every frame of video in the app.
