Coqui Serenade

My SCAD senior film about a man who sings to his loved one from the afterlife through the night time songs of the Puerto Rican Coqui frogs.

Back in the day...

In the summer of 2013 at the California Summer School for the Arts, I was taught that when making art and films the content should come from a very personal place. It was the first time I was away from home for such a long period by myself, so I decided to dedicate my short animated project to Puerto Rico and how much I missed the sounds of the Coqui frogs.


That film became "Coqui Serenade", a small paper cutout film done in the span of a week and I felt it embodied what I wanted to do with my art in the future by sharing with others where I was from and make people feel at home with storytelling.
