“I’ve always been entranced by movement. Be it an extreme action or a subtle gesture, both can speak volumes about a character, set a mood, or relay a message. Since we as people don’t even think about how we move, animation plays into our subconscious, telling a story that our active minds cannot really pick up.

I only began animating in the fall of 2016, so although I have a long way to go, the prospect of learning more drives me to push myself further. Since movement isn’t really something we think about much, I think the reason my animations are succeeding is because I’m working purely off instinct and making everything look as natural and readable as possible.

I’m a natural leader, and although I’m not in the place to do so yet, I’d love to someday become a lead animator for a feature film (or perhaps even direct one). For now, I’m just trying to build up skill and creative vision, but I definitely won’t give up on my goal. I’ll always strive to improve, because in my opinion, there’s not nearly enough time to capture everything about life in one lifetime.
