This was a last minute project for a film class I took while attending UC Santa Cruz. One of the topics was food, so I decided to make a short that focused on the fictional life of a carrot. I worked in collaboration with an awesome stop-frame animator, Kip Radt, who dealt with all the modeling and animation.
So without further adieu, please enjoy this dark comedy showcasing the life (and death) of a carrot.
3 guys, 44 days, 11 countries, 18 flights, 38 thousand miles, an exploding volcano, 2 cameras and almost a terabyte of footage... all to turn 3 ambitious linear concepts based on movement, learning and food ....into 3 beautiful and hopefully compelling short films.....
