Portland 2017 30 secs.

Quick action saves the day.

This project was produced as part of Northwest Film Center’s 2017 Summer Film Camp.

Ibrahim’s idea was to present some sort of outlandish problem which could be resolved positively in such a short period of time. He wanted to make sure there was some simple, yet humorous element to keep the momentum and enjoyment up as well. His top priority was to make the animation entertaining despite the short sequence to show that even dramatic and funny ideas can be expressed in a short period of time. The music was chosen to lend a sense of adventure while the bright colors of the characters would make them visually appealing and easy to follow.
