Kelly Kin is a fellow graduate student at the Texas A&M VIZ Lab. She recruited me early on to help her with WAKE, an animation for her MFA body of work. I’ve been sketching rough boards and helping her cut together storyboard animatics ever since!
WAKE is a story of a boy coming to terms with the loss of his sister, who is in a coma. He escapes into his dreams to forget his current unbearable reality, but when his dreams become nightmares he must overcome his inner demons to wake up and move forward.
Here’s some of the boards and animatics we’ve produced so far.
