In 2013 my dear friend Zina Nicole Lahr asked me to shoot a video for her portfolio. Little did I know that three months after the shoot, I would be editing that same footage for her wake. This short documentary is a homage to my bold, creative and incredibly talented friend Zina.
On Vimeo, this film received 900k plays, a Vimeo Staff Pick, invited to the 2014 Mountain Film Festival in Telluride, Colorado and the 2014 Robot Film Festival in San Francisco. This story was re-shared by thousands of individuals including This is Colossal, Outside Magazine, and Aspen Public Radio, to name a few. Her memory was also honoured alongside some of the most influential animators at the 2014 Annie Awards as part of the Animators Afternoon of Remembrance.
My skills have grown tremendously since the creation of this project, but it is still to this day, one of my greatest artistic achievements.
