This animation started as a 30 second project for a class in order to test my skills in Adobe After Effects. When a video competition sponsored by my school was advertised, I decided to finish the whole poem that had inspired me to start this animation. Upon taking this challenge, countless hours were spent researching and working on creative ways to make my animation unique and memorable. It was submitted to The Creative Showcase in 2012, and won the top prize, Grand Showcase Award. This project was created using Adobe Illustrator and Adobe After Effects.
