Animated short film A Kiss, Deferred for New York Times by Moth Collective

Moth Collective mark another big career moment with an amazing animated short film, created for the New York Times 'Modern Love' column.

The Moth Collective team have never been ones to take their foot off the gas. Last year, we sat down them to do a little spotlight exploring their work with WWF, Global Canopy Programme and their then recent ADCYoungGuns awards win.

Now based in a new space at Netil House, Moth have already produced outstanding work from their new hub. Last week, ’A Kiss, Deferred' for The New York Times' Modern Love column (based on a true story written by Nikolina Kulidžan) was released in animated form designed and directed by the guys themselves.

The short follows a 12-year-old girl as her life and love are shattered by the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina. A genuine love story, the kind we hear so rarely these days with social media taking over our lives and traditional tales becoming forgotten relics...

The conclusion of the piece is a real tear jerker, we won’t give anything away, just watch below.

Once again, big love to the Moth Collective team. Make sure to check out their resident profile and their own personal site.
