In a city park, Lauren participates in a scavenger hunt where passengers must pair up with a pedicab driver to find items on a list, but an inconsiderate, over-weight passenger makes it a challenge for her.
My first short as a professional animator since my college Senior thesis five years ago and the first that is self-funded. This is an attempt to display the type of animation I always wanted to do and the inspirations that I am affected by every day. It is the first short where I wanted to gather a more solid crew, basically all of it brought in online.
This tied with winning the Excellence in Design Award in the Independent Category in the 2012 ASIFA East Awards.
