Collateral Beauty’s main character played by Will Smith plays a lot of dominos and it’s an integral part of the storytelling in the film. The idea was to use the dominos as a creative way to start and end the animation.

I learnt a lot about dynamics from setting up all these animations. It’s safe to say there was A LOT of trial and error to get the right look and feel.
