The Ocean Duck

 Some projects are not only a challenge, but a joy to work on. Referencing the style of illuminated manuscripts, The Ocean Duck uses magical realism to reimagine a poem by the Persian mystic Rumi.

This SCAD graduate film will be releasing in summer of 2021.

Role: Fx Animator, Designer, Compositor

The Ocean Duck provides an opportunity for fx to convey emotion alongside human characters. The role of fx in storytelling fascinates me, and each shot is a balance between the magic surrounding this fantastical water and the intimidating wildness of the ocean.

Animating fx within mixed perspective has required some creative problem solving, as each shot interprets space differently.
