The Last Leaf

Writer, Animator, Composer

A cute little caterpillar runs into big trouble trying to get to the last delicious leaf on a tall tree.

The objective of “The Last Leaf” was to create a joyful short film to showcase a funbut gluttonous caterpillar character. With the help of this cute little crawler, the film aims to communicate that one should think twice before giving in to greed.  It explores, in a concise and entertaining way, the ideas of conspicuous consumption and conservation.

This film is currently on the film festival circuit. Screener available upon request.
