For my senior project at Savannah College of Art and Design, I chose to animate a story very personal to me. This is the true story of my father's survival on September 11th. Although I was only 10 when my father narrowly escaped the World Trade Center, my recollection of the events of that day still resonates in my mind. For this animation, I produced literally thousands of hand-drawn frames in Photoshop. I am so thankful my father survived and honored to tell his story.
