Harrison's First Day

A six and half minute 3D animated short film created for the Salvation Army starring Dick Purtan as an animated character. This short leads off an educational DVD kit that encourages kids to get involved in the Jr Bed & Bread Club which feeds and shelters the homeless in Detroit. This version still needs refinement at the map sequence and end credits.

The story was written by myself and DJ Hurula who produced the short as well. I Directed it and oversaw animation as well as animating the second half of the film. Character designs and models were created by me while the environments were modeled and textured by Dennis Fraser. Damian Fulmer lit and rendered everything. Mike Degg, Mike Prentice and Bruce Spike also provided some character animation while the map sequence was created by Joseph Brancik.
