A Cake for Cherry is my senior thesis at Emily Carr University of Art and Design (2011) and my very first film.
I've never spent so much time on a project before. Took me 8 months from start to finish. Loads of blood and sweat went into this project. It was a huge learning experience and I literally went crazy (and paranoid)! XD There are a lot of things that I want to modify, change and improve in the film (like timing, pacing, shots, animation... etc.), but I did my best.
Even if I'm not truly satisfied with the outcome (there are a lot of things that I hate/love about it)... I have to move on and create new art!
Special Thanks to my family and friends for supporting me and helping me make this film possible! Without you guys, I don't think I would've survived.
Enough with my blabbering, hope you enjoy!!

<3 I am finally able to upload it here.
Primoris Lepidoptera is essentially a learning curve of my three years at the animation department in the Estonian Academy of Arts. When I begun work on it, my skills were still fairly raw and unrefined, but gradually they became better bit by bit in both animation, timing and workflow/planning.
I don't consider it masterful, there's certainly a lot of parts to improve upon, but for what it is (a manner of visual progress in skill), it works.
The story itself is in essence a creation myth.

I could have submitted this some long time ago but only now i finally got my MAC back to me and managed to squeeze an almost 3GB movie into less than 200MB~ On the expense of the quality sadly but oh well~
SO YEAH, after been in YouTube for awhile, here is my 4th year thesis animation film! ( many thanks to $Moonbeam13 <3 )
and WOW it has been already almost 6 months since i finished it xD It feels so old now..
At last here is my first animation, Han&Gree, based on the traditional tale "Hansel and Gretel."
I am very proud of it because when I started I didn't know anything about animation and I learned everything by myself, and I think the result is quite good. However, I think that I need to improve a lot, so probably I will continue doing animations from time to time because I liked the experience.
I hope you like it! Comments and opinions are welcome!
Maybe in Youtube you can see it with more quality, so here is the link: [link]
Al fin! Esta es mi primera animación, Han&Gree, basada en el cuento tradicional “Hansel y Gretel”.
Estoy muy orgullosa de ella ya que empecé desde cero y aprendí todo por mi misma, y creo que el resultado es bastante bueno. A pesar de ello, creo que aun se puede mejorar muuuucho, así que probablemente seguiré haciendo animaciones de vez en cuando, ya que la experiencia me ha gustado.
Espero que os guste! Comentarios y opiniones son bienvenidos!
Es posible que en Youtube se vea con mayor calidad, así que aquí dejo el link: [link]
EDIT: Woooooooow! When I saw the amount of feedback messages I didn't believe it! I thought it would be wrong on DA! xDDDD Thank you for the Daily Deviation, I didn't expect it! And many thanks to all who have commented, seriously! I'm soooo happy!
Death comes to claim a little ghost girl. (He's not great with kids.)
Shadows is my senior film at MCAD, a one-person labor of love that took about a year to complete. It's a piece that draws on my own experiences in working with kids; how it can be both frustrating and fun.
A special thanks goes to my family for supporting me, my friends for encouraging me, my teachers for making me get my rear in gear, and the kids of cabin five for inspiring me. You guys are awesome.
