Nerve to Run

Share Collapse

Author Comments

During a race, a runner struggles to overcome his nervous energy to run as hard has he can and encounters visual interpretations of his nerves that get in his way. The more he worries about the pain and exhaustion to get through the race, the more his nervous visuals begin to affect him.

Made this for my second fall film at RIT. Definitely the most work intensive 4 months I've ever had. Thankful to have finally finished the film and looking forward to the next film! (Which should be my thesis)

This film had so many great qualities. The plot was amazing and I honestly feel like everybody should watch this, your animation style is amazing and I love the fact that you added a bit of humor to the end. Everything is awesome!

I relate to this quite a bit, but nice job! The animation, art, and voice acting are pretty good!


Haha, well that was fun! Nerve-racking and tense, I mean, but what a light finale. You do capture that pressure. In the end, the only contestant is yourself after all.


I wished the character and backgrounds were a bit more detailed and not so rough and cartoon ish looking.
The story and animation is good.
