Ila

'Ila', Inuit for companionship or journey, by Morgan Henty, is an animated short, inspired by the narrative and artistic elements of Inuit Culture. It tells the story of a Boy’s journey accompanied by his dog to seek the Aurora Borealis following the recent death of his older brother. In Inuit Culture, the Aurora can represent a way for Ancestral spirits or deceased relatives to communicate with those on Earth. My aim with the project was to convey this sense of journey and set the mood of the environment at various stages with the use of effective Textures, Shaders, Lighting, Cinematography and Sound.
