Formula Galactic: Kai_Frir

Formula Galactic is an intragalactic anti-gravity racing championship. The Kai_Frir Grand Prix is located on a planet flooded as a direct result of climate change. Kai_Frir, the last remaining city is built amongst the highest mountain peaks. Here, they were forced to wall themselves in until scientists finally found a way to reflect the sun's heat back outwards, away from the planet. While this was effective, the planet was forever changed and Kai_Frir would come to be known as "the land of the pink sun."


Autumnal_blue is a 2D/3D animated, instrumental musical. Its goal was to explore the use of technology to allow independent animators, as well as smaller teams create longer films. It explored what processes could be automated and which required the human element for an emotional connection. Ultimately, it asks if these automated processes combined with human interaction allow for a film's integrity to be maintained and create an enjoyable experience for the audience.
