    Super nice designs and animation. On a side note I noticed that she has had three internships at various studios. I have noticed this more and more with students that they seem to land a lot internships but no job, why is that? From what I can tell they are well worth hiring.

      If someone *this* good can’t get a full-time job offer these days, I’m honestly worried.

    I hope I have a short anywhere near that quality in my portfolio some day.

    I looove Ami’s work. Amazing stuff.

  • Dana B

    Great stuff! Her film definitely has a Miyazaki influence while at the same time feels like a well done western animation. Great, great stuff :)

  • Andrew Chesworth

    Briliant work, Ami! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next.

  • Carlos Herrera

    Outstanding. Fantastic. Ami Thompson is a true genius!

  • Mum

    There are numerous artists showcased here who do not ‘have that “indie comics” “adventure timey” style’.
