Director Statement

The Reincarnation of Puke Pixie is a personal project. After losing several family members in a short time span, I was inspired to explore different philosophies of life, death, and the purpose of existence. The design of my characters and backgrounds are intentionally wonky and messy, as I feel this reflects what it’s like inside my brain. The animated short is an allegorical autobiography of sorts, as it expresses the coping strategies and challenges I faced while coming to terms with grief in my own way. The film is meant to be dark, funny and absurd.
