"Disconnect" (2011) is an animated film I created/directed, exploring themes of depression and loneliness. The protagonist - Malcolm - struggles with his inability to connect with the world and the people around him.
This was my graduation film for Emily Carr and took about 8 months to complete. To date it's the largest project I've worked on. I feel I could have done better, but I'm still very proud I what I managed to accomplish.
Special Thanks to my family and friends for putting up with me during the process.

This is a personal project that started as my final project for the Animation program at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Israel and after graduating I kept working on it to finish it alone. This is the Work in Progress version, which includes the entire rough animation with a bit of colored scenes. This is a combined project of Liron Pe’er (Me, and I'm a woman btw!) and another guy, who dropped the project at an early stage and therefore all you see here was mostly done by me alone (I did the entire animation in the film). WIP Original Score by Assaf Rinde (This is NOT what’s in the final version because of different composers).
And I do NOT work for Disney or any other large company (I'm a freelancer). I already tried to apply to Disney via many ways, but they don't want me or don't have a position to offer me, so what I need is an inside guy...

Last video for the semester; hope you guys like it.
The assignment was to make a short film using the theme of a transition from utopia to dystopia (or the reverse), to use as many "visual elements" as possible, and to incorporate one of two possible quotes. I chose George Orwell's "In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act."
PS: I don't know why some of the animation is lagging. You'll just have to ignore it. Sorry. :/
"The Statement of Randolph Carter" based on the short story by H.P. Lovecraft
