THE CAT BURGLAR

A humble Burglar's routine robbery goes awry when he is forced to steal a cat along with his prize. But when the cat worms its way into the Burglar's heart, he finds it hard to return to his lonely life without it.

My final Digital Short Story project for the MFA Visual Narrative program at the School of Visual Arts, spring 2015

I created all visual elements of this piece in Adobe Illustrator, and animated/composited in AfterEffects. The characters were animated using the DUIK plugin. Then, the entire animation was edited in Premiere, and sound designed in Audition. The project took from January to April 2015 to complete, script to screen.
