The short film I made with my wonderful class is going to be shown in the 2016 Ai Media Showcase! The showcase isn't a film festival or a contest at all -- it's just a showcase (I think). So there won't be any sleepless nights waiting for a panel of people to lay the gauntlet down on our hard work.

I won't have any sleepless nights in regard to that, but I will be nervously awaiting their reactions to see if they enjoy the film. In that manner, the short is being judged.

Shot on a Canon T3i, and edited in Premiere. Drawings were made with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop. Motion graphics and animation done with After Effects.
