"Firenze" is a personal short I made in the Spring of 2018 as a response to my semester in Florence.
I was accepted into to local film festivals Film Fest 25 and the New Haven International Film Festival where I was lucky enough to see my work on the big screen!
This was a very experimental project for me and I created it over the span of a month in my spare time. The last scene, on the train, was entirely designed built and filmed in the span of ten days (after school and work hours.) I can't say the animation itself didn't suffer with the time constraints and lack of budget but I learned a lot and it was so fun to make! A very tricky part of the animation was the amount of backgrounds I drew for the window outside of the train.
It was fun and cheap to build and it will always help me remember my wonderful time in Italy!
Three hand-made animations in reaction to time in florence....
