Cradle (2017) - TRAILER

Returning to the USA after losing both arms overseas, a young veteran battles phantom pains, prosthetics, and memories of his pre-war life while reaching for a sense of normalcy.

My undergraduate thesis film at the John C. Hench Division of Animation & Digital Arts within the USC School of Cinematic Arts. Produced with the help of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, ASIFA-Hollywood's Animation Educator's Forum, and 80+ wonderful Kickstarter backers.
