The Light in the Darkness
This is a short 3D animated project based on the theme of mental health. The simple story is about a young girl who struggles to escape the darkness as she races after a mysterious ball of light. The topic of mental health – inclusive of depression – is one of great importance and as my dissertation research proves, films can make a great difference in affecting how the public view and understand such difficult topics. This project was made with the hope to spread awareness and further understanding (albeit in an abstract way) about the topic of mental health, but, most importantly, to open discussions and conversations about it. Personally, this was also a project that allowed my skills in compositing and effects to flourish greatly.
