This is short animation featuring artwork from the third chapter of Shaun Tan’s graphic novel, The Arrival - shauntan.net
I have created sound and music for the book, hoping to add movement and depth to the images. I aimed to create a soundtrack that is reflective of the book’s visual style and shows the world from the character’s point of view.
The book tells a story of a man who leaves his wife and child in an impoverished town, seeking better prospects in an unknown country on the other side of a vast ocean. He eventually finds himself in a bewildering city of foreign customs, peculiar animals, curious floating objects and indecipherable languages.
