I want to take this project beyond senior thesis and continue to develop it until I can create a career in producing it on a larger scale. During the project development cycle, I was able to create things such as character sheets, scripts, motion graphics, and illustrations that I want to pursue on a professional level.
The largest hurdle was the effects of COVID-19 as equipment and a source of income became unavailable. By downsizing the project greatly and receiving an emergency grant from the department, I was able to proceed further with the project.
