I made this film as my senior thesis at Chapman University.
My intentions behind this film were to convey several things -
1. I needed to create a story in which I could showcase my acquired skills as an artist.
a. Digital Art (2D - matte painting, motion tracking, compositing & 3D - modeling, animation, lighting)
b. Traditional Live-Action film elements (cinematography, directing, editing, set design, etc.)
c. Animation, Art Direction and Design
d. Musical Composition, Performance, Arrangement and Recording.
2. To tell a story in an uniquely unconventional fashion, based on personal, mostly-autobiographical events centered around the nostalgia of some of my most personal memories, from childhood to young adulthood.
The film took almost 2 years to complete, and while I couldn't have done it without the support and contribution from my closest friends, I can proudly say that all the work in this film is 100% my own, where else otherwise mentioned in the end credits.
Thank you for watching this very personal piece, and feel free to send me a message or email with any thoughts, interpretations or questions after viewing.
And lastly, if possible, please watch in FULL SCREEN HD and HIGH VOLUME :)
