Nexus 7: Grandma is a video banner – a one minute visit to the wonderful world of grandparents, as seen through the eyes of a child.

This month’s meditative, repeating and almost zen-like song called for something slower and relaxing. Paint drying and grass growing felt too cliche, so we settled on having a mountain range erect over the course of the song.
