assigned theme:  "F**k my Life"

This 15 second short animation was created in 8 hours with the assigned theme: “F**K My Life”. The theme was given to us a week in advance, and we were allowed to use 4 previously made digital assets (stills or video clips) and music, but everything else was made on the spot.  Winning this got me a shot at the Global Championship!
My inspiration was (clearly) Saul Bass, old Pink Panther cartoons, and a television spot I wrote & directed in 2000 for a personal injury law firm.

This is a video showcasing the event.  I met a lot of great people that night.  That's me winning with my handlebar moustache at around 1:20.
