Here is my thesis film Skeleton Key, enjoy!

I’d like to make a HUGE shout out to the following people who helped make this happen, couldn’t have done it without you!

Barbara De Biasi, who once again, did the amazing soundtrack

Ruben Almeida Jr., sound designer

Lissi Leuterio did all special effects animation

Ashley McGivern, helped with most of the the lighting/shading

Animation & Coloring Assistants: Jen MarreroPaige LincecumLeonardi GuzmanJoan KimAlexander StanchfieldKayleigh ScullionOmnaya OmarKristin SchaeferJerica GoynerYvonne Husan Ho, Deven Johnson, Amanda DePasquale, & David Forte

Courtney Vonada for letting me live with you and for putting up with my “insane” sleep schedule for 3 months

And of course I’d like to thank all my friends at SVA and my family for their constant support - it really means a lot to me.

Also, please like my film on Facebook, it helps for publicity
