Dwayne's Brains was part of an incubator program at Disney TV Animation in the USA. The aim was to create a character that would spark interest into developing a show further. I co-created, co-wrote, produced and directed the short character test. I also designed the character, drew all the key poses for animation, co-designed the backgrounds and composited the entire short.
Year of production: 2014. Running Time: 1:13 min
