Katy Perry “Smile” by Mathew Cullen and Joe Burrascano

In one of the most ambitious animated music videos of the last decade, London Alley director Mathew Cullen and Nathan Love animation director Joe Burrascano rally a massive crew for Katy Perry’s surreal circus romp in “Smile”.

With Burrascano’s Nathan Love as lead studio, the animation team also included design and production talents from Flooul Animation in São Paulo and Little Zoo Studio in Los Angeles, with VFX and beauty handled by Hoody FX in LA.

Cullen’s production company Mirada took care of the initial creative including character designs and storyboarding.
