2018 Animation (1:10)

Hearth is a sixty second animation that explores the connection between citizens in a village: it attempts to show the power of giving, and how each and every citizen can make a contribution to the greater good. When we all give a bit of ourselves, the entire village benefits. 
Hearth uses a metaphor of the village elder making a soup to warm the town, as a motif to show how the contributions of all make the town better. An homage to grandmothers, and the fables of my childhood, most notably Stone Soup.
