I received a grant that enabled me to create a short CG animation, Wycinanki, highlighting the value of compassion and the bonds possible between humans and animals. Wycinanki is based on the true story of my mother rescuing a dog, cat, and chicken in Poland. The film was was accepted into eleven film festivals, won three awards, and can be viewed online here. I am still actively pursuing art and animal activism. My work can be viewed here.
