Canary Yellow is an animated short surrounding the role of creativity and imagination in a child’s development. The animation looks at this through the perspective of a child because this is where most of us learn what’s acceptable in terms of how to express creativity, as well as, the issue of how authority hinders creativity. On a personal scale, this piece serves as a thank you to my parents for always encouraging the creative process throughout my life and providing me the means to pursue my goals in art and design. On a grander scale, this piece serves as a commentary on how society reacts to moments of creativity and the impact of imagination on a global level; how it progresses society and how imagination inspires agency.
