This experimental animation was created in collaboration with a few students for a film contest. We created the story based on the word "Generations." We played with the idea of two generations, graddaughter and grandmother, being connected over the phone over a long distance.
Also, I tried some voice acting in this video :)
The video is rendered in a fish-eye lens because it was originally supposed to be projected on a half-dome shaped screen. The contest was unfortunately canceled and we were never able to see it in its intended form, but I think the film gets across to the viewers even with the distortion.
Many thanks to Amy Zhang for putting together such an awesome team!
This video was made for a conference presentation of a research done by the DartNets Lab.
I collaborated with Anne Muller—she provided some of the artwork and the voiceover.
I was contacted by the Dartmouth Glee Club to create some animations for their performance. Ther musical director gave me a painting of venus as inspiration, mentioning how the songs being performed are about love and the many complicated feelings around it. I used elements of the painting in creating the first few minutes and the last few are a slow reveal of the painting that started it all.
I tried playing with the idea of painting with light—the revealing of the painting starts from the light sources.
The original painting is Rainy Wedding by Leonid Afremov.
Fun fact: I am eating donuts as I edit this page.
This is a little animation I did for a 3D Animation class. There's a little twist, so watch till the end...
