Racing the Sunset is a 2D animated short film I directed for my senior year at SCAD. The story is an action-comedy about a young thrill-seeker named Eric who loses track of time while watching the sun set over the city. Realizing that he has a date in a matter of minutes, he makes a desperate parkour rush through the city to make it to his rendezvous on time. 

Racing the Sunset was accepted into 8 different film festivals across the United States & Canada and is a two-time award winner for best animated film.
