Groove Armada – Lover 4 Now

 

NOTES:

A quarantine love story directed and animated by Fons Schiedon.

The video portrays the long distance relationship between a cat named Cosmo and a dog named Mio. Living in homes that show no sign of human life, they help themselves to the contents of fridge and pantry, and find companionship through video chat.

I wrote the treatment as New York was shutting down to handle the coronavirus outbreak. For weeks, the city remained eerily quiet, except for the frequent sound of ambulances. An audio recording of that soundscape taken from my roof is what the video opens with.
