“Taking Pictures” is a delightful short film created by London-based computer animator Simon Taylor that follows a love story between two photographers. Taylor explained in a recent interview that the short was inspired by an incident in his own life.
I decided to do a “boy meets girl” type story but wanted it to be as unique and un-cliche as possible but still feel genuine. I remembered a moment between my girlfriend and I where we were waiting in a queue and both had our cameras, we started popping the flashes up at each other like a quickdraw.
The artist also details his process in a short behind-the-scene video.
