Dante

 

This is a short film I was developing before I got a full time job. I still work on it when I have some downtime from work.
 
The following slides are used as a pitch I use to communicate in a visual way the mood and look of the film.

Some variations have been made for the look of the character. Looking for a balance between real life ants, cartoon characters, and generally a character that will be pleasant to look at for about 5 minutes and follow in his journey
