This is my senior thesis film from Ringling College of Art and Design, that I co-created with my partners, Lindsey St.Pierre :iconwegs: , and Ashley Graham (Blog: ashleygrahamart.blogspot.com/ )!

The film won the 2013 gold Student Academy Award for animation! We are so honored!!
The reception of the film has been wonderful and we are all really grateful to everyone who helped us to be able to create it!!

Our musical score was composed by Corey Wallace, and the sound by Mauricio D'Orey

We used Autodesk Maya, Nuke, Photoshop, and Pixar's Renderman to create it

The film centers around the Mexican Holiday Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead.
Hope you enjoy!

:)

This is simply superb! I found you via CakeWrecks (www.cakewrecks.com/home/2013/1…) and I had to let you know how wonderful the animation was. I love the smooth transitions, and I hope you got a really good grade from your teacher since this was your thesis piece. It's excellent work! Thanks for sharing it!

The whole day I've been rooming around on Deviantart, repeating to myself that I want to "see something that will capture my heart" "something that changes lives"... Anyway that's what I kept telling myself till it became 12AM. Till your Artwork was shot my way, & god it will be an understatement to say that it was what I was waiting for... it was alot more. You & your team are pure genius. Thank you for making my day That weekend feeling

I'm not sure if I wanna laugh,cry, or hug this short. I love this! Even though it doesn't have any dialogue and it only lasts three minutes, you get a very good feel for the emotional journey the little girl is going through. Also, the style is beautiful, really looking vibrant and alive.

@03:06Absolutely beautiful... touching, but also very fun. I think it's a very good way of portraying the real spirit of Dia de los Muertos - many people around the world don't realize that the purpose is to celebrate those who have passed on, not to mourn them, and it is a joyous thing, not as dark as the concept of it may initially seem. :) Great job!

It makes me so happy to see that the story was able to convey the  true meaning of what “El dia de los muertos” is for us Mexicans.  Thankfully I still have my mom but my dad is living a better life.
This is enchanting in so many levels !!

 I’m still crying!!
You deserve that award!!!

It's about remembering our beloved ones who have passed away.
