I was the Creative Director and Story Lead for my senior project team’s animation short, Sprouting Spirit. I was responsible for all storyboards and camera direction. I was also responsible for some of the prop modeling, layout, animation, and editing.
Synopsis: A young girl named Maple reminisces about the time she spent with her imaginary friend Cornelius. Through their magical adventures in imaginary worlds, she learns to overcome her fears.
