The Collinwood Fire is an animated short film multi-media platform for nonfiction storytelling about the Lakeview School fire in Collinwood, Ohio. On March 4, 1908, flames tore through the building, trapping many of the roughly 350 people in it. 172 children, two teachers, and one rescuer died.
I worked on this project as a set designer and 3D modeler, beginning with concept drawings based on archival documents, and ultimately constructing them using the program Blender.
