Head in the Clouds

Tools: Blender, Adobe Premiere Pro

Description: My 3D animated loop portrays an abstract representation of the mind during the process of daydreaming. Viewers are guided into the mind to explore the right and left brain. Both sides of the brain feature crowded and uncanny shapes, but the right side focuses more on imagination while the left side focuses on self-reflection. My project aims to portray the complexity of what goes through one’s mind while the rest of the world stands still.


Directed, Edited, & Performed by Dyllen Nellis.
Choreographed & Performed by Danny Inestroza.
Cinematography by Jose Danny Gonzalez.

Tools: Adobe Premiere Pro

Description: Dance short film about two people who only exist in each other’s memory until they finally reconnect. Featured at Grand Arts Talent Show & Film Festival.

Song: “Paranoia, Ghosts & Other Sounds” by SAFIA.

A Dialogue With The Self

Tools: Adobe After Effects

Description: This performance art piece explores the conversations we have with ourselves: the power plays, the fights, and ultimately the understanding. How can we work in harmony with our inner selves?

Process: I choreographed the dance, then worked in the space and taped the floor to map out my bounds and center. I then recorded myself performing the dance with a plain white background on the projector. In the computer, I flipped the video, keyed out the background, and animated all the effects/colors/shapes. Finally, I went back into the studio to record myself performing the dance again with this new video as the projected background.

Song: “Cant Remember” by Player Dave.

A Flash of Life

Tools: Adobe After Effects

Description: Revolving around the theme of “time”, I created a stop motion animation focusing on the life of my mom. The beginning signifies her living in and enjoying the present moment. When a wave of the past washes over her, she recollects her experiences growing up as a child. She arises from the wave now acknowledging the passage of time and reflecting on her journey from where she began to where she is now. Featuring Cindera Che.

Time Is an Illusion

Tools: Processing & Adobe Premiere Pro

Description: Coding project using Processing. I wanted to contrast how time seems to pass subtly in the present moment, but ultimately it feels like time is flashing before our eyes. As we grow older, we perceive time as moving faster and faster. When the mouse is clicked, the speed of rotation dramatically increases and colors & shapes flash in the background. This is a short video of my interaction with the program.
