Ben Jelen’s “Where Do We Go” Gets Animated

Custard releases the animated version of recording artist Ben Jelen’s video single “Where Do We Go” exclusively online. The ‘animatic’ video is directed by L.A. based director and animator Sean Donnelly whose commercial resume includes projects for Scion, Microsoft, VH1, TiVo, The Spinto Band, Galactic and Angela McClusky among others.

Unfiltered, loose and raw, this animated adaptation of “Where Do We Go” is a sequence of stream-of-conscious live sketches set to the pop-friendly tune about claustrophobic hearth aches. It’s quick, rough, cathartic, and maniacally animatic! Check it out below and get tripped out:
