The Case of the Missing Shoes


This is a story about town’s disappearing shoes for my 2010 senior project. I created everything from the story board, the models, the backgrounds, rigging, animation, etc. I tried to simplify as much as I could since this was a solo project and I had only one semester to work on it

foxStoryBoardThe main character is a lady that loves shoes, and has a giant shoe collection that is mysteriously reduced to one single shoe. The neighbors are also missing some shoes. The culprit turns out to be a mother fox, getting some toys for her two kits.
