Artist Statement

I am fascinated with technology’s effect on artists’ creative processes. The emergence of the internet and online platforms has inspired countless animators to expand their storytelling techniques. My film takes the format of a YouTube genre known as ‘Storytime Animation,’ in which a character gives a soliloquy on a particular opinion, event, or memory. Imagery accompanies the voiceover to illustrate some of the actions and emotions throughout the story. This framing device has allowed me the freedom to experiment with a dynamic range of visuals, engage with my imagination, and, most importantly, let me have fun with my film.
