"Scribbled In" is a short animated story about creative blocks and overcoming them. Whereas fear and perfectionism are the usual suspects in stifling creativity, I believe curiosity and playfulness are the "cure." I developed a story about an artist going through an internal struggle and had him discover how to get over the block through the actions of a childlike figure. In the short, I combined several styles of animation and visual elements. I chose to use the environment to mirror the emotional state of the artist and to create a visual metaphor for his journey. The artist transitions from his studio, to his dream, and then into the mind of a bouncy and playful child. Each transformation features a different balance of 2D and 3D elements.

"Heirlooms" started as an early project from my fifth semester and has since expanded. I am inspired by classic cartoons such as "The Secret of NIMH," "Ratatouille," "The Rescuers," and "Cinderella." I love that in those examples, characters that have a minuscule identity in life are portrayed as individuals with emotion and constructive thoughts. I like how those characters interact with others of the same species in their respective stories, and appreciate how stark the change is in communication between those who are different. "Heirlooms" represents a progression of learning in which I applied everything I learned at FIT. I wanted to combine the story that I created and love with a medium that I have had a love/hate relation- ship with from the beginning: 3D!

For my thesis, "Mythical Guardian," I chose to develop a side-scrolling video game that has a mixture of both 2D and 3D elements. I've always been fascinated by that genre of game, particularly with how much detail is put into them — the environment and the characters feel alive. I chose to use the Unity Game Engine soft- ware for developing my game because I have past experience with it. I have always wanted to make an environment that was full of wonderful designs and to create characters that would live there. I would like players to experience adventure through this "2.5D" side-scrolling game while enjoying the sights of the vast environment.
