SOAR is a short 3D animated film adapted from the poem "Where the Sidewalk Ends" by Shel Silverstein. I wanted to tap into a style of my own after reading Silverstein's lyrics. Much of the visuals relate to childhood nostalgia and the younger heart. For me, the message is that even through hard times, youth can soar above it all and prevail. The sidewalk ends in a place where anyone young at heart would like to venture to.

This project became my senior project at the University of Wisconsin-Stout. It was a great experience and opportunity to explore poetic possibilities within animation and through my own music and visuals.
