Filmography   

filmmaker's note
Break Down is an animated short film about two disparate characters trapped in an elevator. The two characters, a manic wrestler and a calm elderly woman, each respond differently to the dire situation they find themselves in. The film is created in a cartoon-inspired style that combines both 3D and 2D animation. While much of the story is humorous, Break Down also touches upon topics such as anxiety, claustrophobia, and patience.
