My master's thesis animation, which I completed while I was
at Rochester Institute of Technology , MFA Computer Graphic Design.
Created using Maya, After Effects, Photoshop, Illustrator
and final composite in Final Cut.
The story begins with the fish exploring the ocean while trying
to find its way. This represents Childhood and youth, and how
children are naturally curious.
As the fish keeps travelling, a big transformation happens where
it eventually takes on the body of a deer. This transformation represents
how youth and childhood must come to an end, and how people
are forced to change and become adults.
As the deer travels, his environment changes from winter to spring. This
conveys all the problems that adults must face and eventually overcome.
When He finally returns to the ocean, all the color is back in his world,
and the lotus flower begins to bloom. This represents Rebirth and the
circle of life.
Think positively is what I trying to convey through this animation. Every
difficulty you have in your life will eventually be solved!
