Dance of Life is my 4th year diploma film at Sheridan. It is an experimental musical non-narrative short film where a young girl Leela performs the ancient ritual-dance called Sun Salutation (Surya Namaskar) which represents the eternal cycles of life.

First Hand: Norma's Story Designs
Here are some designs I worked on during my summer internship at Smiley Guy Studio(Toronto).
I was super excited and honored to work on First Hand Climate Change Stories under the wise guidance of its directorAlex Hawley. It’s about native people of Yukon, in particular Gwich'in Nation, and how they were affected by the environmental change. I developed design for Caribou Mandala, Blood Mandala, Big Goose and Bead Mountains Layout.
The voiceover of the film was done by Norma Kassi, Chief of the Vuntut Gwitchin and it is her story as a little girl. Norma Kassi devoted her life to activism and served as an elected tribal spokesperson for the protection of the Porcupine Caribou as well as director of Indigenous Collaboration at Arctic Institute of Community Based Research
