Project Main Details

Animated Degree Project 
This is my senior thesis film in animation. It is the story of a father raising his son to live in world where he will not exist. It is based on my father's upbringing by my militaristic grandfather who died in Vietnam when my father was seven. He an Irish man from a small town in MA who fell in love with a Japanese woman (my grandmother) and culture during his time in the army overseas. While he had boundless love for my grandmother, he raised my father in a very cold, survivalist manner - most likely due to the fact that he knew he would one day die in war and his son would have to learn to grow up without a father. This film means a lot to me. The narration needs to be poignant, still and pensive - almost as if the narrator (who is supposed to be my father) is reflecting on his past.

Script Details


Custom demo required 
"As a boy in Kansas I was afraid of three things: rattlesnakes, tornadoes and my father"

"No, Leo-san was a good father. But he was more wolf than man."

"My mother told me one of the reasons she had fallen in love with my father was because American soldiers played with children. She also told me a ninja would kidnap me if I was bad."

"Bushido - the way of the warrior. A thousand year old set of moral principles to live and die by. My father adopted this samurai code following the occupation, tempering his mind and body like Japanese steel."

"Those who live by the sword, die by the sword. Leo-san was shot and killed in Vietnam, Februrary 18th, 1966."

"Bushido - the way of the warrior. There are methods of raising children by this code, but all are used in constant preparation for the parent’s death."

"The child of a wolf is still a wolf. My father didn’t teach me everything, but I learned fast."
