The Locket and the Sea

Short, Animation

During my time at Vancouver Film School, I had the opportunity to collaborate with students from the animation department. It was a fun experience and made me fall in love with animation even more.

“ Working with Julia was a great help for me and the development of the story of my film. There were many things I wanted to say through it, scattered in my mind at the time. By just sitting down for a while with her and discussing the premise of my idea, Julia’s counsel led me to find the structure of the story and its concrete purpose. I was able to bring to light the core of it through her guidance on original ways to help the audience see exactly what I wanted to tell them. “
