Zach's Ceremony

I recently had the great pleasure to collaborate with director Aaron Petersen on his debut feature documentary Zach's Ceremony.
Zach's Ceremony follows a young boys journey to becoming a man. Zach discovers his culture, his country and his responsibilities as an Aboriginal man in modern day Australia and shares his story with the world.
I designed and animated the opening titles and directed two animated stories within the film.
Zach's Ceremony premiered in Toronto at Hot Docs 2016 and the Sydney Film Festival 2016.
