The Battle Within • Animation


Make an animated short about battling grief.


A small faceless creature is in mourning and doesn’t know what to do with himself. He finds himself literally battling grief but is saved by the support of his family and friends.


This is the animation I’m most proud of because it was a highly personal project. I had come up with the short story idea and storyboarded the entire thing very carefully. The animation, while not completely fluid, worked well in the setting. I animated the entire thing in Flash and did a little post-production in After Effects. I also wrote the music and did the sound effects that play through the entire video.
