City of Ghosts 2021 / A serene, mockumentary-style animated series that aims to get to know ghosts


Two things stand out most. First, the animation style, which looks like a cute combination of various multi-textured elements like online avatar profiles, claymation, and origami and construction paper cutouts. Second is the voiceovers, which sound very candid and raw as if the creators had prioritized bullet points, and had visual elements and script polishing come in later. The pseudo-documentary approach and “rough” production feel exciting and fresh, and truly tie all the individual parts together. This could’ve just as well been a silly live action concept, but its serene nature and aesthetic stand out perfectly as an animated series.
