2D ANIMATED SHORT FILM

My first animatic after taking classes in Adobe After Effects.

In 2011 A NEW DAY IN OLD JAPAN won the Open Section at the NEXUS NMIT Film Festival in Melbourne

I wrote; illustrated; costume designed; animated and edited this short film.

My illustration 'Surprised Geisha' was the inspiration for the story.

The music for this student piece is Moss Garden by David Bowie from his album Heroes.

A metaphor for the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings I wanted to create a kind of visual haiku on the idea of encountering the unimaginable.
