The Neighborhood


Based on the original, early comics of Chestnut Creek (stylized as ; pre-2020), The Neighborhood is an animation project serving as a prologue to the series.

As it is based on , the film parallels on cultural heritage and a community investment within itself. However, through the adaptation of animation I use sound design and use of traditional and digital media to parallel contrasts among collectivism and individualism on different societies.

The short film is a testament of my journey to teach myself the art of animation in conjunction to research and work ethic outside of academic structure.
