Tommy had promised he would be home on time - but something about today was different. Something he could not know. Something he never would have expected. Were it not for the beckoning, almost hypnotic flash of a twinkling blue crystal, Tommy might have sensed that the trajectory of his reality was about be forever altered.

In a race against time, Tommy's heart-pounding adventure presents my Animated Cinematic Thesis from Vancouver Film School.

Shout-out to all fellow 3D Animation Innovators! All votes cast Tommy's way for his debut in Shards of Reality on the CG Student Awards site would be tremendously appreciated!
