"Being Pretty" | Dystopian Animated Short Film (2017)

    "Hello, citizens of Autodale! You are pretty. Your neighbours, friends and family are also pretty. But sadly, not everyone is pretty. Some are ugly ...We, here at Autodale, do not want "uglies."
    This animation was extremely fun to work on. I definitely enjoy doing my own original stuff over Overwatch/Rick and Morty stuff. I hope that this (Like Redone) does well so I can continue doing original animations. It's so much more fun to explore my own personal creativity. Building this world from the ground up was awesome and I'm quite proud of the final result.
    This short explores themes of individualism, innocence and brainwashing which were very fun to play with; something I don't think I could do with the restrictive nature of a fan-film. Really hope you guys enjoy it!
