BFA Animation | Class of 2020

After graduating I hope to enter my film into film festivals and start my career as an animator at a studio.


This senior film was done using Maya 3D animation software, the Adobe suite, and the Substance Designer program. I created all of the models, rigs, textures, and animation seen throughout the film. My goal was to create a simple and fun sequence that could show off my animation’s acting and story making skills. This resulted in a blend of two of my biggest inspirations: Japanese giant-monster films and American cartoons. I think Jumbo turned out to be a lovable and goofy character that is enjoyable for all ages.
