Produced At Ringling College of Art and Design.  Copyright Alli Norman & Carla Lutz 2015.

A collaboration with Alli Norman resulting in a 4 minute CGI animated short which premiered in May 2015.  Idea created December 2013 with preproduction starting January 2014.  CG Production started in August of 2014 and the film was completed April 2015.  Alli Norman and Carla Lutz are responsible for everything within the film including: story, modeling, rigging, animation, texturing, lighting, compositing, matte painting, and editing.

Though they were both born and raised in the midwestern suburbs of the United States, Alli and Carla grew up with different aspirations; where Alli grew up drawing and painting, Carla spent her childhood days thinking she would be a lawyer.  After some career decisions and some soul-searching, they both found themselves as freshmen at Ringling College of Art and Design in the Computer Animation curriculum and have been collaborating ever since.  They combined Carla's business and story savvy with Alli's understanding of color, light, and sculpture to be great visual storytellers.  Inspired by creative challenge and their surroundings, film-making is their favorite medium and they enjoy combining innovative visuals with a heartfelt theme.
