Howie the owl hangs out in his tree hollow every day, until one day he sees a radiant beauty on the branch above him. Determined to win her affections, he decides he’ll do anything to impress her.
The short film was produced as my first ever 3D animated short (all created by me from start to finish, except sound!) for my masters course.
Why do you deserve to win?
The direct ROI of this work is hardly worth discussing in my opinion, because it was a very expensive Masters degree and I will never win at that game. However, it was insanely fun to create. I used Zentangles to texture the assets (because in animation you can do anything you want!) and I think it created a unique aesthetic. This project is the one I’m most proud of not only because it was both challenging and fulfilling to produce, but also because it has been the basis for being hired for all of my freelance jobs (even if they didn’t actually need 3D animation).
