The White Dwarf
The birth of a star results in the conception of a sentient and self aware being. The star is thrown into an unknown and isolated state in which struggle ensues. Through the journey, attraction towards an elusive light draw the antagonist into pursuit - only for the light to attack. As the star dies, it completes the life cycle of the white dwarf. The character was shot via live action and manipulated in After Effects. Backgrounds illustrated in Photoshop and animated in Cinema 4D and After Effects.
