11 second club
My entry for the monthly 11 Second Club contest, in which animators are challenged to animate and re-contextualize a snippet of dialogue. In my reinterpretation, a stressed-out craftsman has a heart-to-heart with one of his own creations, a talking teddy bear.
Though my entry didn't wind up winning, it did place within the top 50 entries, out of nearly 300 entries! I'm very proud of it, and had a ton of fun working on it and experimenting with fabrication.
