2015 UPDATE: thank you to everyone who has enjoyed my film over the past 2 years!!! My next project is a long-form comic called Sylvania. It's about three sisters from a family of forest witches. I hope you'll check it out at http://www.sylvaniacomic.com !!!
I wanted to make sure I wouldn't get tired of working on my thesis film halfway through the year, so I made sure to throw in all of my favorite things. This is the result: my ode to merpeople, schoolchildren with magical secrets, the color aqua, and of course, hermit crabs. I hope you like it too!!!

Extra special thanks go to my parents for their inexhaustible love and support, to all my coloring minions for their hard work, and especially to my 4th floor bros for being so totally rad. I LOVE YOU ALL
My final film for animation class, fall 2011, completely animated and composited in 5 weeks. This is the first time I've ever done anywhere close to this amount of animation in such a short time, and I'm really proud of what I got done and how much I've improved this semester.
Dedicated to the memory of Diana Wynne Jones, whose stories have been a huge inspiration for everything I create, and this film in particular.
Special thanks to my parents, who put up with the real-life version of the first half of this film every day for years, but always took me back to the library once my chores were done.
