Kramer

When I was 13 my family began raising puppies for The Seeing Eye® - the oldest guide dog association in the US. "Kramer" is an animation inspired by the events of raising our 5th dog - also a golden retriever named Kramer. Created entirely in After Effects using masks and animated masks, I chose this story as my MFA thesis in hopes to inform and inspire others to welcome such puppies into their homes.
At this time - summer of 2020 - we are currently raising puppy #13, a chocolate lab named Bosco.
