Til Death Do Us Part

A tired and anxious Doctor Frigg barricades herself in her laboratory, desperately searching for some clue to aid her in bringing her one true love back to life. In a fit of anger, she slams her fist on her desk, starting up an old tape recorder. Too tired to stop it, she listens to her past-self ramble until she is given the final piece of information she needs.

Director Statement

Til Death Do Us Part is, in short, a labor of love and passion. In the beginning, there were only two of us, Alexander and Bronwyn. We had decided to team up long before the Senior Capstone class had even begun, and tossed around a ton of ideas, some of which we still hold close. But it wasn’t until we inducted Kat a few weeks before the class began and Chib a few weeks after that we found something we all loved; a scientist driven mad by her love for her monster as she fights against time.

We each had our own roles to play in the production of this film; Bronwyn was head of character modeling and animation, Alexander was head of rendering and editing, Kat was our project manager and head of rigging, and Chib was head of VFX and texturing. We chose roles that we all felt fit our needs best, but obviously there was some overlap between each of us. And there was struggle; there were a multitude of issues throughout the project that honestly bewildered us. Thankfully, everyone pulled their weight, and we've made a film we're incredibly proud of!
