Description

Third year animation film at UArts. Original Pencil Tests here - https://vimeo.com/175082787 An abstracted animated documentary based off of my own personal struggle with suicidal thoughts after a near attempted hanging in November 2014. My feelings of depression are personified through a dark luring fog as a loving mother tries desperately to keep her son alive. "Hanging" has moved into the semi-finals of the 43rd Student Academy Awards! Festivals & Awards: "Best Animated Film" Rough Cut Film Festival. 2016. "Semi-Finalist" LA Cinefest. 2016. "Official Selection" ANNY: Animation Nights New York. 2016. "Official Selection" University of the Arts Senior Animation Show. 2016. "Official Selection" University of the Arts Sophomore/Junior Show. 2016. "Staff Pick" Fibo: The Chosen One. 2016. "Staff Pick: Short of the Day" Character Design Resources. 2016. This emotionally personal traditionally animated film hand rendered in pencil & charcoal required over 6,000 drawn images produced in one semester during my 3rd year spring 2016 Junior Production Class at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. Nick LeDonne is soley responsible for all aspects. Dedicated to my father, Thomas LeDonne who suddenly passed away of a heart attack at the start of production. He inspired me more than anyone to hold my ground and keep pushing myself forward.
