Run.

Abstract

"Run" is an animated graduate thesis film that is 5 minutes in length. You will be taken on a journey with the film's main character, Ethan, as he goes out for a normal jog. While on his jog, different memories start confronting Ethan and he is forced to deal with an event that completely changed his life: the loss of his best friend.

"Run" is a combination of traditional hand-drawn animation as well as 3D animation, and was created using programs like TVPaint and Maya.

This paper will take you through the creation of the film - from storyboarding and creating the original idea to the production stages and the film's first public showing. It will cover everything that I dealt with while making the film and describes how, in the end, this film helped me start coping with a personal issue of my own.
