“Kickball” by Dana Terrace

Kickball is a third-year film made by Dana Terrace at the School of the Visual Arts. The highlight of Dana’s film is the animation: it’s lots of fun to watch, with fantastic control over shapes and design, and expressive motion that brings out the personalities of the characters.
