Working with my crewmates of 10 I had a great time helping to see this movie evolve into the now explosive painstaking adventure of a pirate family. My main role on Pirate Lesson was 3D character animator. Animating goofy birds, an intimidating but tame father, a simple-minded son, and an enraged Kraken I've gained the experience to bring a variety of comedic and cartoony energy to each of the characters. 

On the team, we've grown so much with our characters and gave them so many contrasting characteristics so they have their own lovable individuality. Learning a very cartoony slapstick style animating on 2's really pushed us animators to make sure the scene felt intense or funny. Working on several shots for the film I had a great time learning what it takes to work on a full production for a short film and the crew and characters will always stick with me.
