Snow Hare

Share Collapse

A few years back I lost a close friend I'd had since childhood. His death was tragic and left me in a state of grief that I was having trouble dealing with. I decide to make a film about what I was going through. It's called: Snow Hare.

The film itself is about a snowshoe hare going through the stages of grief. It was my senior film at Cal State Long Beach and consumed the last few semesters of my time there. It was a lot of work, but along the journey I met many like minded friends that helped me to believe in my story. Everyday I drew pictures and thought about my lost friend. In the end, making the film was the best therapy I could have asked for.

Great story, great music, great animation; this was a very well done animated short film, with a powerful emotional story to boot. A rarity seen in general, let alone a free content-hosting site.

Aww, this is my favorite!

Absolutely amazing... so sad, but so brilliantly animated

very sad yet teaches us a lesson that you, nor your friends, can live forever.
and the crow that leaves the hares body symbolizes the acceptance of his friends death.

I hope your friend Bryan Banister finds happiness where ever is. and I mean that!
