IMAGINARY FRIENDS: Short Film

Imaginary Friends was a pro-bono short film I worked on with the motion studio Hornet, for the Pediatric Tumor Foundation. The objective of the film was to help kids deal with feeling sad while in treatment. My job was to design an underwater world and some characters that would be replicated in CG.
