Private Project


Assemblage is a moment in time that captures both artistic and visual experimentation with themes of solitary journeys, exploration of new territory, and a search for missing pieces. The concept for Assemblage came from the desire to create using new processes of animation and emphasize the exploratory nature of that through a loose narrative following one character.
