Individual coursework towards New Media degree at IUPUI.


After storyboarding and collecting look and feel artifacts I created this 3D animation in Maya of fireflies lighting up a growing plant, in this case a magnolia sapling.


  • Frame by Frame stop-motion animation of growing plant
  • Around 100 different plant models.
  • Extensive storyboarding.
  • Glowing particle effects to generate firefly effect.
