The Good, the Bad and the Puppy was my senior thesis film at the Savannah College of Art and Design. Over the course of a year, I worked with over twenty animators, background artists and sound designers to create this three minute film. Here is a look at some of my process!

Character Designs

I was inspired by Clint Eastwood westerns, and based my two main characters off of his iconic poncho-wearing cowboy.

JO

Jo is a woman on a mission: to find her missing dog and bring him home. Clever and determined, Jo isn't going down without a fight. Her mini poncho is a nod to Clint Eastwood's iconic poncho in films such as The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.

JO'S DOG

He's no ordinary dog. He dreams of adventure, of grandeur and smokey rooms, stiff drinks and the shuffling of cards. How far will he take this desire for something bigger than just going on walks and being pet?

POSTERS

I had so much fun creating this poster for the credits of the film, as a parody of the original "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" poster!

I created this poster to recruit fellow students to work on the film.
