Senior Thesis: "Petals" Animated Short Film

Hi my name is Dana Timpert and "Petals" is my college senior short film produced at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design. This page is dedicated to all the work put into making the film from pre-production to the final film. After nearly two years of work I'm very excited to finally share my final film! The story focuses on an existential crisis from the perspective of a small flower. Exploring themes of love, loss, and growth all in just about three minutes.
