This short video was originally conceived in 2006 to capture a simple idea that brings clarity, humor and poignancy to the expression of creativity.
From drawing board to Mac, storyboard sketches to motion tests, character development, modeling and environment to final rendered animation, this is a project that has spanned close to 9 years.
The final rendering you see here envisions the understated joy and power of one of creativity’s core tools, a tool common to all creatives wishing to give flight to their ideas.
Many thanks go to those who believed in the idea and kept it alive through their encouragement. And a special acknowledgment goes to those who lent their talents to this endeavor: Drew, Marco, Brian, Bill and John, each of whom is gifted in his own unique way.
Enjoy. Share. Create.
