Raven Brings the Light

This project is a short film that is loosely based on the
Native American myth of The Origin of Daylight (also known as Raven
Steals the Light), that will use an animated raven to bring the sun to
the city of Seattle and start the day. It will use video and 2D
animation for visuals, while incorporating found sound mixed in
Garageband and Audacity for the soundtrack. The goal of this project
is to successfully combine video, audio, and 2D animation in a short
film that loosely emphasizes that the culture of the Native American
people is present in Seattle.
