Vancouver narrative masters Giant Ant mix traditional animation and 3D in this updated take on 1930’s cartoons for Slack powered by the song “Count Your Blessings And Smile” written by legendary English actor, singer-songwriter George Formby and re-recorded by Toronto’s Danny Simmons.

“Slack approached us with a song from the 40s, the deep affection for high fives and the idea of building a spaceship as a conduit for amazingness. Mixing b/w and colour, traditional animation and 3D, we took these cuties to space to make some new friends.”
