Renowned animator and illustrator Glen Keane has released a new animated short titled ‘Duet’.

‘Duet’ follows the adventures of a young boy and girl who leads parallel lives but somehow meet each other later in life. The young boy, accompanied by his pet dog spends most of his time enjoying the outdoors, while the girl grows up to be a dancer.

The animation is beautifully drawn against a blue background with delicate illuminated lines and manages to be expressive without dialogue.

The release of the short is part of Google’s Advanced Technology and Projects (ATAP) Spotlight Stories, which aims to promote a new way of storytelling on mobile devices.
