Senior Thesis

This semester I am working with other students at the kcai. One of the students created a story in our japanese class and then this summer we decided to bring that story to life. So this year as my senior thesis, we are working on elaborating on that story and then animating it. So far we have finished the first shot.

In this directed study that I am taking, I am attempting to find my own voice and style in animation. I thought that maybe I could take some of my stories or poems and incorporating them into my animation style.

My Bathtub

My second semester final of my sophmore year. It's about a time when I was kid. My mom told me that there was a time that I would hide in the bathtub from my aunt. I'm not sure what I was doing in there, but I decided to do an animated sequence of imagination.

I wanted to show what the seasons look like, in the hopes that those that don't always get a chance to pay attention to the changing seasons will notice it.
