NOVA’S MOON

 

Craig Walker and I decided to create a special personal short film dedicated to his beloved child. This short animated film was base on the heartfelt poem written by him and the unifying visual theme was inspired by his personal tattoo to remember his late child Nova. 

 

We brainstormed and developed the story together and we teamed up with other talented people. I worked on the first 30 seconds of the animation and I collaborated with two other very talented friend artists to create the last two shots, one is CJ who is a super talented and versatile animator and VFX artist, and Francis who does magic as an amazing 3D artist specializing in Houdini. We are currently in music production to have its original sound design by Brandon Chapman and we will release it after we have this done. As a note, we only have done this project during our free time.
