How Culture Connects US
Created for the Jewish Arts Collaborative's annual Arts Matter event.
Writing, designing, and animating this project on my own was a huge undertaking. We wanted to place an emphasis on diversity, which required a large number of characters with different colors, body types, hair, and accessories. 

So, I had to develop a quick way to design and rig multiple characters while easily being able to customize their styles and colors. I created a single character rig with individual controls for body shape, fatness, and hairstyle. I also had to code a number of expressions that would enable me to randomize the colors of their skin, clothes, and hair without breaking our color palette.
I just love the message of this piece. Ignoring our differences is not real unity. True unity is where we embrace our differences and celebrate them. Art is the best way for us to do that.
