I’ve always grown up under the staple of hard work, perseverance, and resilience, so why not make a film about it? Rebound has been my obsession the past 3 years of college, a story I’ve wanted to tell since high school, combining my passion for animation with my love for basketball. Rebound challenged me to create a unique style and identity, inspired heavily by films like Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse & Space Jam: A New Legacy. For my film, I’ve built a team of motivated individuals to develop the looks, sounds, and cultural accuracy of Rebound, constructing a retro NBA style typeface, casting some incredible voice talent, and collaborating on a beautiful original music score. Rebound tells the story of pushing through obstacles and failures, because I believe that you cannot succeed until you fail.
