A tour of Hannah Jacobs’ work

What I love so much about Hannah Jacobs’ work is her uncanny ability to capture the best qualities of animation: Each of her films feel human, emotional and made with intent.

Her latest film for Tom Rosenthal’s “Borrowing,” is perfect proof of the power of Hannah’s voice. Between Hannah’s animation style and Tom’s haunting music, this film is captivating through the very last frame.

To her impeccable first film for Tom Rosenthal:

It’s worth noting that all of these projects were created within the last year. Amazing.
