STELLA is a film following the journey of a young alien girl, making a long journey across her planet to recover something lost. Sheltered for much of her life, the alien world she lives on is strange and unfamiliar to both her and the audience. Created in late 2019, Stella was a character whose story and world soon took hold of me, testing my creativity and skills for storytelling and design along the way. It has been humbling to look at a personal project of this type and make hard choices about editing scenes and the story, from early drafts to storyboards to final animatic.
The process for getting STELLA off the ground was a long one, but I'll be damned if it wasn't rewarding as hell. I plan to continue STELLA's story after graduation.
I first started working with digital art in 2014-15, when I received my first drawing tablet. Since then, I've made great strides in my work and have learned so much through experience, observation, and a number of teachers.
Nowadays, I consider myself to be a pretty good digital artist, and I specialize in storyboarding, character design, and animation.
