The creation of â€˜Going the Distance', the 10-minute animated video I created for the University of Iowaâ€™s Carver-Hawkeye Arena was an adventure in seeing the world of sports as an almost choreographic experience. The video aims to capture the dynamic motions of skilled young athletes, frame by frame in their grace, strength, and physical prowess, and then to transform these movements into a compelling visual narrative. By interweaving live-action footage with original animation, my goal was to reveal the underlying kinetic beauty, precision, and gravity-defying drama unique to each sport as it unfolds in time.
