This animation was completed for my graduation show at the Memphis College of Art in April 2009. Story boarded, animated, composited, and scored over a four month period using 3ds Max, Photoshop, Illustrator, Adobe After Effects, and Logic Pro.
The animation is based loosely on West African tree of life myths and legends that emphasize the cyclical nature of life and the universe. In Yoruba "Iwa" means strength of character.
