SVA MFA Computer Art: My thesis animatic with proposed music track.
New Creation is 2 minute 3D animation about a morphing character who longs to complete her metamorphosis into a butterfly so that she too can stretch her wings and fly towards the heavens. After noticing the change in season and winter quickly approaching, she develops an overwhelming desire to bypass the seemingly lengthy transposing journey.
It is in this dream, which is initiated by a plunge into the water, that she is able to see the importance of this beautiful the process. Symbolizing psychological, physical, and spiritual evolution, a graceful dance is employed to illustrate the amazing transformation she undergoes. The character encounters an abundance of emotions from initial joy to complete elation during this extended temporal experience. Finally, moving towards the light, she exits her dream and peers down to see her own reflection. A prospect that seemed only close enough to see but too far to touch was within her her reach all along. It was nothing that she had to worry or be anxious for, instead it was part of her destiny to become a "new creation" from birth.
