Rhapsody with James

 
 

About

Rhapsody with James is my first short film and also my graduate student project at Animation Mentor. It is a story about James who is always in conflict with himself. He is split between his head and his mouth and they always want different things.

The film was animated while studying character animation at Animation Mentor and rendered after the graduation to get its final look. Rhapsody with James made its world premiere at the Busho Budapest Short Film Festival in 2008.

Below are images from the film and a bit of concept art and sketches used to create the film.
