A semester long project of learning the process of animation including character design, storyboarding, modeling, rigging, and animating in Maya. The story was inspired by a boy's ability to intrigue an entire crowd by his curiosity of an accordion player from Siena named Pavel Runov. This was a three month learning experience to have a new tool for animation. I will revisit these characters and create more storyboards to work on making another animation based on the actual moment that occured in Italy.
