The Wound and The Gift (Single Project)

Story board and animation art created for the feature film The Wound and the Gift. The Wound and the Gift is a documentary which explores the relationship between animals and humans. The narrative spine of the film is an animated ancient fable about a wounded crane, saved by peasants, that attempts to express her gratitude with a gift. Scenes from the folktale will weave together stunning real life footage of rescued animals and their sanctuaries. As the fable and the film unfold, we cannot help but wonder, Who is saving who?
