About the Project
AWARD WINNING ANIMATION IN THE 2018 FIVE16 FILM FESTIVAL. Several animators and I decided to create a short film about a child being terrorized by a duck vampire.... As one does. We wanted to use this short film to promote an up-and-coming comic book series. Though it contains both 3D and 2D elements, it encompasses the essence of the comic and we are excited to see it succeed for Gracia Blazek (the comic creator).
My job was to animate the monster characters and create both the 3D and 2D environments.
