The Story

Life begins to unravel for Floyd — an overworked, unfulfilled businessman — in his wife’s sudden absence. So many questions. So many seemingly strange answers leading him forward. Moths are appearing all around him and no matter what he tries, he can’t halt the visions. In a panic, he flees, running wildly for days. Exhausted, there seems to be no escape for Floyd …but in the end there may be no end at all.

Floyd Waters

Our Hero

Floyd is an overworked, stressed but good guy. Even before his wife disappeared, he wondered if this was all there was to life. When she's gone, he struggles to understand and keep up with the crazy visions he's having.

Rose Waters

The Disappearing Wife

Rose had always sought out higher truths and been driven to extremes to find it. It was part of what Floyd loved about her, but he knew it could also be her undoing.

Building in 3D

With each design frame, there were elements that lent themselves to cel and those that needed 3D. Sometimes 3D was used for reference for cel artists to visualize how proportions change in space, especially when extreme lensing was involved.
