Monster Island (2012)

Official Selection:  Atlanta ShortsFest 2013 (Atlanta, GA)

A lonely monster hoards junk in his windmill until one day something new flies his way and he learns a lesson about friends.

Monster Island was my first film post undergrad in which I taught myself the basics of After Effects and cut out animation.  The assets were created with water colors and paper and scanned for digital manipulation.  Traditional frame by frame animation can also been seen in the bird as well as the tree.  It was important to me to continue learning and working on personal projects even after graduation.
