"The whole thing with creativity is there's something new out there. Why not give it a try?"
-Marc Davis

This quote from legendary Disney animator Marc Davis helps illustrate why I make animated films. The field of animation has such a wide range of techniques and styles that an animator can use. From traditional 2D pencil and paper to computer generated images, even experimental methods such as sand and paint on glass. I love trying out all the ways animation can be made and exploring different subjects that each method can help express.
