Arianna: In the recent years I have been very inspired by Celtic and other forms of traditional music, and this song came about after re-stringing a zither we obtained last year. Upon playing, it simply flowed out. I call it ‘Mountains’, because that’s what the song felt like to me (I think the echoes enhance that feeling). Kai said it made her think of unicorns, and I added that to the companion art. So please enjoy this musical piece, and know there will be more to come. And because it has no real lyrics in it, I would be very intrigued to hear what you hear or interpret within this song as well!
Avery: on Nov 8th, “A Pebble in the Pond”, a documentary film I contributed to, will have a fundraiser private virtual screening! Every ticket is tax deductible and supports the assistance league of long beach and their philanthropic programs. So not only do you get to watch the film, you get to support a good cause! One ticket (50$) is all you need for the entire family to watch. The film will be provided as a private YouTube link, and will be available to watch for a couple of days after. The film will return to film festivals afterwards, so this is the one and only time to watch the film online in the foreseeable future! This will be the first time I’ll be seeing the film myself, so I’m very excited! The film is self described as a “Feel Good” movie, and will make the audience ask-
“How can I create ripples too?”

Additionally, I did an Instagram Live Chat with director Paul Howard on his instagram, check it out!
Avery: While not necessarily an animated short film, you can think of this as an animated art piece. Dialogue was written by me and was included in a separate art piece I had done quite some time ago, this animation is a sort of reboot of that artwork. Voice performance was done by me, and was the first time I have ever used my voice in a creative way like this. Enjoy!
This is a little project i worked on over the course of a few weeks. I love space/surreal themed art if you didn’t already know. If I don’t know what I want to create, my default thing to go to is almost always space themed art.
This project was created inside of the blender 3d software.
I had a lot of fun creating this animation, especially the music and sounds, I think it feels really immersive! Enjoy!
