Leah Shore Helps Lyn Lapid Take on Industry Greed in ‘Producer Man’

Indie animator directs and produces the Tik Tok star’s breakout music video, a minimalist blend of live-action and clever hand-drawn animation.

It’s all about the money! Leah Shore is back, this time switching gears from COVID-19 admonitions to tackling the tale of a wicked, greedy man. Shore directed and produced the live-action / animated breakout music video for Tik-Tok star Lyn Lapid’s “Producer Man.” In the video, Lapid sings center stage while hand-drawn animations act out her lyrical woes. The concept is simple and elegant, with minimal coloration, putting into focus the harrowing experience Lapid faced as an up-and-coming artist.

More impressive than the seamless blend of live-action and animation is the speed in which the video was created. Shore tells AWN, “It was a very fast turnaround in that I had to produce the animation in about a week and a half. I boarded this in 2 days and we filmed Lyn in less than a day. I think it came together pretty well!” Shore shared directorial and producing duties with Lillie Wojcik. The animation was created by Sarah Miskoff, Rob Yulfo, and Sam Braithwaite.
