About the Production:
“I absolutely love short animated films. To captivate an audience, your story must be spot on. Animation gives me the chance to create a unique believable world in a medium I am extremely passionate about. My MO is giving a voice to creatures that don’t normally have them, and that is what “Essence” is about.” — Sari Rodrig
