Psychotherapy is an almost 3 minutes ad about the reasons why it’s normal and healthy to go to therapy, written by Alain de Botton for the School of Life and directed, animated and designed by Isaac Holland from Beakus.
Isaac Holland was born in Oxford in the 80’s (when it was rough), and went to state school (which was very edgy). He studied printmaking at Manchester Art School and then studied for a Masters in animation at the Royal College of Art. He was an Adobe Achievement Award semi-finalist, won the Best Student Film Award at Tallinn’s Animated Dreams festival, and his graduation film has screened around the world – including Chicago where it scooped the Best of Fest Award. Isaac is also a skateboarder and guitar player, naturally. Beakus is a commercials and broadcast animation production studio based in London.
