Through the power of group projects and bad 80’s animation, can two art students overcome the obstacles of creative collaboration? Or are they doomed to a life of repeating courses and missed opportunities for radical friendships?

Negative Space was a perfect glitterstorm of collaboration, complete with exhibition building, animation-emulating, online-internet-community-faking, VHS-wizardry, and probably 80s-inspired madness. I loved it and would do it all ten more times.
The final thesis film was transferred onto a VHS tape for the exhibition with the help of Ethan Gould. Here's a shot of a manufactured 80s cartoon for the film, inspired by He-Man and Jem and other such heavily rotoscoped cartoons, animated by Dasha Prosyannikova with backgrounds by Dani Lozada.

An argument I staged between two of my professors, well-known comics individuals to have on their social media platforms, about the existence of Secret Fable of the Last Neon Star Hero Fighter (in Radical Technicolor), and a photoshopped ebay listing for a poster for the fake television show, because there is no end to this rabbit hole.
