The Castores Union was a 30 week (Junior-Senior year) film project at DigiPen Institute of Technology.

Inspired by Coelary, it is a 2D animated trailer for a non-existent noir anime film.

I wrote the script and developed the style of the film, including characters, animation, and layouts. I contributed final environments and animation, performed all compositing and post-processing, and oversaw every element of the film to maintain a stylistic consistency across the film's 40 shots.
