Recess Reindeer is a short animated film about Richie, a little blue Reindeer boy who, with a little help from a foreign exchange octopus girl, learns how to stand up for himself against the emo playground bug bully.

This film is the capstone project of our four-year education at Ringling College of Art and Design. We have created every aspect of the film, from story, design, animation, and lighting, just to name a few.

As part of our curriculum, we start brainstorming and designing potential senior films during the last half of our junior year. We have been working on the film for 9 months now and it has been intense, but very rewarding. Watching our ridiculous characters come to life in the world of our film has been the highlight of our student careers at Ringling.

Recess reindeer is in its final months of completion, but we're missing a crucial element... the musical score. We have been working closely with composer Andy Brick, who has worked on such films as The Little Mermaid II, The Music Man, and he has created a beautiful piece of music to fit our film.

It will cost $2,200.00 to buy this music. And that's were you come in! 

We hope that you can help us bring the weird world of Richie, Svetlana and Deegan to life. Whether your donation is big or small, you are a really important part of the completion and success of our film! And we've got some awesome swag prizes for your efforts.

Thanks guys and have a beautiful day,

Christina Faulkner & Jon Upton
