Senior Thesis Project
West Chester University - Spring 2018
I decided to really push myself to create an animated short film for my senior thesis project. The prompt for the project was “play”. I wanted to created a playful, imaginative, and whimsical animation. This story represents the ups and downs of life, and how it can get really tough at times but you just have to keep moving forward.
The main character Dincus was only born with one wing so he has trouble flying. One day as he is rolling along a balloon comes out of the sky and attaches to the hook on his head. This makes flying a little bit easier for Dincus. He goes on an unexpected journey that has lots of ups and downs and at the end something magical happens!
