The Wishing Cranes

  • The Wishing Cranes
  • The Wishing Cranes is a Ringling College thesis film co-directed by Seth Anderholm, Kaiya Telle and Ellen Arnold, Production Managed by Lara Arikan.
  • Kickstarter launching soon! 
  • Wishing Cranes is an three and a half minute long 3D animated short film about Yuki and Sho, two orphan siblings living in Japan in the 1960s.  Sho is a responsible brother and a hardworking paper boy, Yuki, his younger sister simply wishes she could spend more time as a family.  
  •  Kaiya, Ellen and Seth are responsible for all I.P. and creative assets. It has been a blast working on this project with them as I contributed strictly in a production level;
    - creating and managing budget, 
    - communicating with additional talent such as Composers and Sound Designers, 
    - drawing up contracts, 
    - creating our strategy for out Kickstarter funding, including writing the script and editing the Kickstarter video together.  
    - connecting with music licensing professionals,
    - communicating with voice talent and booking studio space for recoding sessions,
    - arranging team meetings.
  • Looking forward to premiering Wishing Cranes online in Summer 2017! 
    Thank you for all your support in advance.
