Marlo The Magician

I worked on this character-driven project during my second year (2011) on the BA(Hons) Animation course at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design. I directed the short 2D animation called Marlo The Magician after creating the idea, character and story. After my initial brainstorming and character design, the project team was formed and further character design and story development took place.This is a screen capture of an interactive Flash website I made for the project.
