My Shadow is Pink Short Animated Film

In 2020, I set out to turn My Shadow is Pink into my first short animated film.

It took 18 months of extremely hard work, working with a small group of extremely talented individuals, but we finally managed to bring it to life.

The goals/reasons behind making the short film were:

  • Get noticed by studios in hopes of getting a TV/Movie deal for the book (ultimately bringing the message of acceptance to a far wider audience)
  • Learn to create my first animated short film so that I can lean on those skills for future projects on the screen

Since the release of the short film:

  • We are now in development of a My Shadow is Pink TV Series
  • Over million views on YouTube

I am extremely proud of this short film – it was so much harder to create than I expected, and took so much longer than I ever anticipated. And I am proud to say, that I am taking the lessons learned in production, and am in the early stages of developing my second short film.

I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

My Shadow is Purple Short Animated Film

In 2024, I am creating my second short film, this time based on my book My Shadow is Purple.

After creating the My Shadow is Pink short film, I learned an enormous amount which I will be applying to this new short film, as well as stretching to create something significantly better:

  • A more individual art style that is more in keeping with my 2D art, rather than focused on pure 3D (whilst using 3D tools)
  • An improved sound experience, this time with a team of musicians to create our own score and improved foley (that was the plan with My Shadow is Pink, but unfortunately fell through at the last minute)
  • A faster pace, with tighter & more emotional story-telling

I am making this short film for 2 purposes:

  • To finally bring representation for those kids outside the gender binary to the screen
  • To act as a springboard to a feature animated film that continues the theme of acceptance and inclusion. I am currently working on the feature script based on an original idea of mine that brings these themes to a broader audience.

Currently in fundraising to bring this short film to life, moving to pre-production early 2024.
