Human Amongst Gods is one of the first films that I had the pleasure to produce. It is a film about a little boy who wants to be a God. The catch? This boy isn’t good at anything.
This is a film by Jessica Cutrell, who also did all the concept art, story boards and character designs for this film, as well as animated on it.
When it came to the portraits of the Gods in this film we encountered a very unique problem – we needed at least 30 illustrations. Coincidentally, I had a large collection of business cards from SCAD’s own comic convention, and we reached out to all the Illustration and Sequential Art students who’s work we had admired for a long time. They were excited and happy to contribute to the project, as it was a fun collaborative project, something the students from these two departments don’t get to do very often.
This film was completed in September 2017. You can find out more about the film on Jessica’s website here.
