The Sad Panda Fellowship is the story of a young woman named Velle cursed by immortality, and her impossible quest to find a cure with a genie named Mic.
The two videos here are only the first chapter of a three part story:
- Your Beauty and Your Beast
- Sleepless Beauty
- Mirror, mirror
The Sad Panda Fellowship was my final senior animation project at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design. Each individual frame is painted in Photoshop and the animation is done in both After Effects and Final Cut Pro. The story has since evolved and my abilities have expanded, when the proper time comes I would like to challenge myself with this project again.
