MUSIC VIDEOS 38: Youngsters - Smile

Influenced by the work of Japanese actor-director Takeshi Kitano and by Manga animation, 'Smile' is this graphic designer's fourth promo for the group. The band's name inspired Boscovitch to translate the simple children's game of painting by numbers into a story in which the characters from the last three Youngsters promos play their music. The static characters on a moving background were created using Flash and Illustrator, with lighting effects added to give sophisticated and fluid images throughout.
