White Raven


I created five animated sequences for White Raven, a BooTown shadow puppet theater production exploring the life of a bird born with the wrong color feathers. “White Raven” featured three channels of live shadow puppeteering (performed by Lindsay Burleson, Jade Young, and Mauricio Menjivar), with one screen intermittently showing stop-motion animation.
