This one part, when Death is dancing with the girl, and suddenly the ballroom disappears around her... the way that that part is shown just makes me filled with lots of emotions. It amazes me what some people can do. I wanna be able to do that someday. :3

@00:54I love this. It made me really sad to see a little girl being brought to the afterlife but... it is what has to happen. I appreciated death's doll dance. It made me giggle but then i felt bad when the girl had to deal with conflict of fighting death or just accepting it. ;(

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.

Shadows by ~YamiRedPen is a lovely, orchestral piece dealing with a sensitive issue. Great use of colour and light! ( Suggested by DiabolaExMachina and Featured by ditto9 )
