Well it only took a year, but I finally posted my thesis on Youtube. “Love at First Roach” is the result of over 9 months of grueling work. My advisor on the project was Disney vet Nancy Beiman, and I have to say I learned an incredible amount working with her. Rigging was done by Greg Smith, who now works at Laika. The original idea for this film was very different, but I do like how it turned out. I needed about a year to distance myself from it, and now I can watch it without cringing so much, haha. I haven’t spent too much time on sending it out to festivals, though I probably should. It did screen at Tony White’s “2D or Not 2D
Festival in Washington state. Let me know what you think in the comments!
