A blind homeless boy loses his one coin and sets out to find it, only to discover a trail of music that leads him to something more beautiful than he could ever imagine.I was the director and animator for my undergraduate thesis short at the University of Southern California. I hand painted all the backgrounds in watercolor and animated the film frame by frame in Adobe Photoshop. This film was inspired by my time studying abroad in Florence, Italy, where I was able to listen to the guitarist Piotr Tomaszewski render his beautiful tunes in the Piazza della Signoria.
