Wings | Animated Short Film | SVA Thesis

  • Published on Aug 27, 2019
  • In this story of kindness, friendship, and the fear of being left behind, a friendship takes flight as a mouse that wants to fly and an injured bird cross paths.
    Final film from the School of Visual arts. I directed, background painted, animated, and did about half of the cleanup/coloring myself! The rest was handled by my awesome team in the credits. Thank you to Colin Andrew Grant for the fantastic score, and thanks to SVA for the two grants that helped me produce this film!
    And thank you all so much for watching. This was a huge labor of love for me, and I'm so glad I finally get to share it!

    TheXvid is the single largest source of untapped animators with so much broad talent. And that is evidenced on the sole reason I'm not seeing this in theaters.

    Oh goodness, this was so adorable! I love the attention to details in the design of the animals and the way they move, so life-like despite the humanization of their facial expression! I loved it, it made me tear up and squee with delight

  • Kachiseusu Channel

    I am impressed.
    And it is very good that mouses ears shows mouses feelings. Tempo of sound is very nice.

    Even though the mouse cannot fly but the bird the mouse helped
    Made the mouse feel how its like
    Up high and how it felt like
    Moral of the story: if you did something kind to someone
    It will always go back to you
