The short film follows Scott Barnes and Donna-Maria Valente as they grow up in a small american border town in the south. They fall in love as children and fight to be together in the face of repression, discrimination and intolerence even in death.

The animated short was created over the course of one academic year single handily by myself. It was tough but I relished the challenge.

Production timeline was as follows: Sep-Dec: Pre Production (drafting, concept art, mood boards etc.) Jan-March: Modelling, designing, rigging and texturing the characters using only Maya. April-May: Animation, editing, compositing, post production and everything else that glitters.
