Director Statement

This animation was created as my After Effects final for ART447 Motion and Compositing under Brandon Waltman at UMBC. For this project, I wanted to tie in the reoccurring mail truck from the past animations of that semester's assignments into the narrative. Additionally, I thought it would be fun to bring back my old characters from when I was young as the main characters, turning the animation into a celebration of my past 10 years of animation.
