This animated clip is from the educational film TreeTender, which is an animated film about biodiversity for the Florida Museum of Natural History. In the film, the protagonist Gaia must navigate the tree of life and save the Earth's fragile ecosystems on her first day as a Tree Tender. Please watch the entire film via the link below.
As part of my animation process, I always film reference footage of me acting as the character. This helps me establish the correct poses as well as timing and spacing for the performance.
