This paper Accompanies my animated short film entitled Bessi. In this paper I will describe the creation and motivation for the story of Bessi. I will also discuss my visual style and the roots from whence it came. I shall tell the reader of the techniques I used to achieve the ascetics I wanted. I will describe all the issues I had in the creation of the story and the problems I encountered as I animated. I explain the animation style I chose and why. I also discuss the animation techniques I used and why. I shall tell how my animation was received and the problems that were evident. Finally I lay bare my failures with this film and what I could have done to make it better.
