from the video

CHRISTMAS TALES FROM OTHER LANDS

This is a 20 minute long animated educational film produced by Colman Communications Corporation for the 9-12 year old market. I designed the characters, completed storyboards, animated both humans and animals, and painted all of the backgrounds for over 200 scenes. The movie is divided into three stories different countries: Petru's Candle from Romania, Busy Befana from Italy, and Mustafa's Eyes from Syria.
