footage and animated segments. Below is

This piece celebrates
summertime in all its
glory by portraying
iconic moments of the
season in an imaginative
and abstracted way.

I wanted to visually accentuate the
fleeting, unique joy that only this season
can bring. The combination of collaged
animated elements with found footage
communicate the ephemeral quality of
the season, while carrying a sense of
charmand delight throughout the piece.
