The video for “Never Years Old,” the new single from singer-songwriter Nina Shallman’s self-titled debut album, was released January 15, 2016. Nina co-wrote the song with Jacob Snider, with whom she duets on the track.
Incorporating thousands of hand drawn images, stop motion photography, and live action, the video was created and art-directed by Angaea Cuna. An artist who experiments with the unity of traditional art, such as drawing and painting, and media arts, Cuna is a Design Media arts major at Broad Art Center at UCLA.
“Nina, Jake, and I conceptualized it together, and the process was very organic; therefore, the story is organic,” says Angaea. “We had a small budget. I used pen, paper, coffee, sugar, paint, and borrowed equipment. The story and the protagonist are timeless and mystical.”
