“The Storytelling Animal” by Greg Lytle

SVA animation student Greg Lytle (previously featured in the Animated Fragments) was recently commissioned to create this quirky trailer for publisher Houghton Mifflin Harcourt’s new book The Storytelling Animal. The book, written by Jonathan Gottschall, is about “the integral part that stories play in the human species”. Lytle created the trailer in two and a half weeks, using Photoshop and After Effects.
