These are some of the Character and Environment designs created for my thesis short film, tentatively entitled (working title) "The Bookworm". These were made with the assistance of Juliet H., a freelance designer. Although the script, storyboards and animatic are (almost) completely done, I am keeping the story to myself and a select few others for now. This is being planned out, at the current time, as a stop motion/CG hybrid short film.
