This is an animated version of Butterflies, a short story written by New Zealand author Patricia Grace. It was used as part of an online learning course, as an example of the subtle ways certain interpretations are privileged or considered more ‘right’ than others. I animated and edited the project, as well as illustrating the backgrounds. The characters were illustrated by NZ artist Evan Heasman. It was created both digitally in Photoshop and After Effects, as well as using hand illustrated character assets.
