All The Thinks You Can Think (2016)
All The Thinks You Can Think is a short animation commissioned for the annual 2.009 Product Engineering Presentations, a prestigious event held by the MIT Mechanical Engineering Department. It's based on the Dr. Seuss book of a similar name, and embodies the lightheartedness and colorful nature of Dr. Seuss's work. I was in charge of character designs, storyboarding, and animation for the project, working alongside a sound designer and videographer to make sure the live-action to animation transitions went smoothly. The little bearded character is based off of the infamous 2.009 course instructor (pictured below) while the colorful beaver characters represent the different teams that competed in the 2016 Build Challenge, building different mechanical contraptions to rescue their respective fish from the freezing pond!
