About the project

The Story Pouch is a 3D computer animated short film about a man alone, unable to expressive himself creatively. This begins to change as he is pulled into a multidimensional space of dreams and memories. Through this journey he remembers what it is like to live the dance and is at last able to tap into his own creativity.

The project, written and directed by Todd Kesterson features the creative talents of over twenty-five students and faculty members from Oregon State University and the University of Oregon. Additionally the team comprises professional artists including internationally recognized color stylist and conceptual artist Ron Dias. The film in currently being submitted to festivals around the globe.

This production is unique in a number of ways:

  • It involves a diverse production team including students and graduates from two universities as well as faculty members and professional artists.

  • Everyone involved has had the opportunity to contribute to the story or the design in some way. It is truly a team effort on every level.
