Director Statement

I draw inspiration from animal life and other biological subjects to create new creatures and tell stories relatable to all ages. Bobblebird has existed in my sketchbook for the past year, making appearances in various projects I've worked on. The 3D animated film "Bobblebird" is the first time the character gets to be star of the show!

The production of "Bobblebird" took place within the course Animation, Art, & Technology at Carnegie Mellon University. This project wouldn't have been possible without the contributions of the Bobblebird Team; Luca Damasco, Orianna Green, Jun Huo, and Hannah Liu; our composer, Marina Lopez; as well as Mat Clark, who let us modify his antron shader. Special thanks to James Duesing and Jessica Hodgins, the professors for Animation, Art, & Technology; as well as Spencer Diaz and Daniel Pillis, the course's teaching assistants.
