"High on a mountain, a rope ties together a climber and a mountaineer. They climb or fall as one. This bond is worn and strained as they ascend the treacherous peak."
I made this film after living in the mountains for four months and reading a technical guidebook on mountaineering.
The film is textured with hand-painted watercolours which were scanned and folded into the 3d models.
It was my final graduation film from Concordia University's Film Animation Program. As part of our animation program, I was able to collaborate with composer Julie Thériault. We had access to a fantastic recording studio and wonderful musicians.
