Dinosaur Song

video

One summer i came across a book store that carried a small illustrated poem By Daria Tessler. The title of the Story was Dinosaur Song and it inspired me to create an animation based off it. The animation Dinosaur Song was created using a variety of Materials, animation techniques and computer programs. Since this project would be my final Cal Arts student film, i really wanted to just have fun developing the visuals of the animation. One of my greatest inspirations in animation is Yuri Norstein, who's paper cut out animations influenced the look of this short. I am thankful to Daria Tessler for sharing this story and allowing me to recreate it as an animation. I am deeply grateful for the relationships and experiences that i have gained during my time at Cal Arts. Thank you, I will miss You Cal Arts.

I'm impressed with Dinosaur Song. I like it very much. I hope you go on producing such films, even though it must be a lot of work... It pays the price.
