Director Statement

I wanted to explore the idea of identity and the lengths we go to avoid vulnerability in a funny but relatable way. Drawing/painting humans has always fascinated me, so animating this character was exhilarating. Seeing her come to life and following my directions has helped me accomplish some of my goals with animation.
