Danaé Gosset | Communication Arts

When you watch the mixed-media animations of New York City–based animation director, art director and designer Danaé Gosset, you’re instantly transported to vividly colored worlds that almost feel like places you’ve visited in dreams. “I believe some key characteristics of my work are tied to a dreamlike aesthetic and narratives that exude a sense of reverie,” she says. “I enjoy constructing worlds that transcend reality and feel suspended in time.” In fact, dreams and their timelessness inspired Gosset to enter the field of animation; she studied at the School of Visual Arts under Carin Goldberg, Pablo Delcan and Debbie Millman, and during a senior-level independent study class under Delcan, Gosset undertook a daily assignment to animate her dreams. “Every day, I would try something new, and this ultimately sparked my interest in combining digital and analog tools,” she explains. “I started blending 3-D with traditional frame-by-frame techniques, scratching film mixed with after-effects animation, and incorporating film with 3-D. This process felt incredibly liberating, and with each passing day, my experiments became more free and daring.” These experiments had a lasting impact on Gosset, who, now at her own production company Pencil TV, creates animations for clients like Apple, Nike, Spotify and Warner Music. “I like bold colors, the texture of dust and the ‘feel’ of knowing something has been touched and loved by a human hand,” she explains. “I hope people see my work and can get the poetic feeling embedded within it. I would love to touch people’s hearts and continue to evolve my style to unique, unseen places.”
