How Do You Know
Teaser Animation
Art direction and animation of the trailer for How Do You Know, a documentary in progress by Alex Geller. The film explores marriage, and the social, legislative, economic, and personal forces that drive people to—or away from—formalizing intimate partnerships through the state. Between the first same-sex couple to obtain a marriage license in the U.S., to an interracial couple who wed overseas due to anti-miscegenation laws in their home state, the documentary weaves personal stories with commentary from pertinent economists, policy-makers, historians, writers, and academics. Watch the trailer.
