We as human beings inherently strive to live the best life that we possibly can. We all want to be happy. Many times we see happiness in terms of what and how much we posses. This story is about how we don't always need the biggest and the best to be happy. The simple things in life are the ones that matter.
Through this paper I will document my process in the making of my thesis animation "The Apple Tree". I will discuss how my main character Zach, discovers through his interaction with a magical apple tree, that biggest isn't always best.
