QUEST for the Crystal

One of the crystals is missing, and its been replaced with a walnut!
The resulting QUEST forms the bite-sized whirlwind narrative of my senior thesis film, completed in April 2017 at the Rhode Island School of Design. Mediums include hand drawn animation, clay, stop motion, cardboard puppets, and live action green screen, all composited using After Effects.

Director Statement

For my senior thesis, my goal was to find a method of filmmaking that could be sustain my enthusiasm throughout the entire year. I spent the fall semester coming up with a story that could act as a framework for all the different material experiments I wanted to try. During the spring, I built each scene shot by shot, creating the visual assets by hand and compositing them in After Effects, changing mediums whenever I got bored.
