A Film by Yoo Lee

This is my very first student film I made as a MFA animation student at USC. It's pretty rough animation but it was s first narrative story I was able to tell and it meant a lot. Finishing this short was pivotal in cementing my path in stop motion animation. 

 

A wild turkey flies into 8th St. Jersey City and all the old timers have their own moments of how they perceive the wild bird. Loosely based off of the real event that happened, it's an homage to my former neighbors back in East Coast who were tough like leather on the outside but soft and kind inside.
