Tangled Tale, 2014
This stunning sand animation by Corrie Francis Parks, who is is a fellow USC MFA Alumni, transcends sand animation to another level. It's her successful usage of colors as well as digital mediums such as After Effect that makes her film so immersive, multi-dimensional.
The making of this film process as just as beautiful as the finished product so I highly recommend watching it. I can watch Parks' film all day long and find something I had missed that blows my mind each time.
