LAI Video Featured at Next Stop Animation Showcase

by James Loizou

Last Friday, LAI Video was proud to be a part of the opening of Next Stop, an animation art gallery that featured a collaborative submission from our team’s talented motionographers.

This year’s theme was inspired by train travel, as the gallery converted Dupont Underground's decommissioned streetcar station into 30 looping "windows" into real and far-off worlds.
