A group project created by Marc Rowson, Ioana Magurean (Ruth) and Michelle Tolentino. Bear is an animated short for a family and children audience, explores the friendship between a young girl, Laney, and her best friend, an imaginary bear, and their journey growing up and reading together. As a group, the aim was to create a visually appealing animation with a meaningful narrative. Inspired by Disney’s Up (2009) and Feast (2014), the short presents themes such as companionship, nostalgic pastimes and growing up. The narrative serves as a reminder to the audience to appreciate the small things in life that make you happy.
