Wings | Animated Short Film | SVA Thesis

  • Published on Aug 27, 2019
  • In this story of kindness, friendship, and the fear of being left behind, a friendship takes flight as a mouse that wants to fly and an injured bird cross paths.
    Final film from the School of Visual arts. I directed, background painted, animated, and did about half of the cleanup/coloring myself! The rest was handled by my awesome team in the credits. Thank you to Colin Andrew Grant for the fantastic score, and thanks to SVA for the two grants that helped me produce this film!
    And thank you all so much for watching. This was a huge labor of love for me, and I'm so glad I finally get to share it!

    I love it! It's a precious little gem! Rather than saving feathers & flying, it helped the bird, cared & nursed it back to health...then had a true flight....soaring in the the kingdom of heaven...all thgs pure & beautiful!

    This animation is amazing, the attention to emotion, The overall smoothness, The character development in such a short animation, all fantastic! This deserves more attention. It's amazing. The fact that Mouse saw Robin struggling and couldn't leave Robin there, How sad it made Mouse to see Robin hurt, How much Their friendship blossomed over the seasons passing, How Happy Mouse was when Robin was better, but then got sad at the thought of Robin leaving, and of course, Robin seeing this, could not leave his best friend Mouse behind. The animation speaks for itself, no words needed to be said at all. This was amazing!

    The character design is so good. The bird with the white around the eyes makes all the expressions really pop. How long did this take?

    Incredibly sweet- touching, but without being sappy. The backgrounds were gorgeous (as was the music!), and the drawing style was unique. A+!!
