Wings | Animated Short Film | SVA Thesis

  • Published on Aug 27, 2019
  • In this story of kindness, friendship, and the fear of being left behind, a friendship takes flight as a mouse that wants to fly and an injured bird cross paths.
    Final film from the School of Visual arts. I directed, background painted, animated, and did about half of the cleanup/coloring myself! The rest was handled by my awesome team in the credits. Thank you to Colin Andrew Grant for the fantastic score, and thanks to SVA for the two grants that helped me produce this film!
    And thank you all so much for watching. This was a huge labor of love for me, and I'm so glad I finally get to share it!

    Really appreciate this project. I've been struggling to get back into creating artwork on a regular basis since after highschool. Almost 40 now! I've always wanted to complete a short traditional style animation myself but don't feel I'm anywhere close to where I need to be to be as satisfied as I would with this. This is really great work! I know enough about what goes into this. Editing is a skill in all its own.
    Really happy to have seen this. Love when inspiration is found without looking for it.

    This is amazing! They don't speak yet you know exactly what's going through their heads. The art style is clever and I love the little details. Sometimes the background looks like an added wallpaper, however. Besides that, it's marvelous!
