The Creators
Meet Hannah and Todd. They are a husband/wife animation duo. This is their first animated short done together.
During the daytime, Hannah works as an art director for an animation studio and Todd is a freelance animator.
Feeling restless with their side projects, they decided to make their first short together. Todd bringing to life Marshall, and Hannah bringing the color and knowledge of the marshlands.

They currently live in the Washington DC area.
