Overthinking Tea

A girl has a problem with overthinking. Until one day, elves appear in her brain
and use her overthinking to make a cup of milk tea…

Poster of Overthinking Tea

The story is inspired by my own experience of always being overwhelmed with overthinking. The project is an animated short made in After Effects and Cinema 4D. The style will be bright, lively, and magical. Through this project, I want to turn my negative experience of overthinking into a blessing, and convey that overthinking is not always a bad thing, because all the things I saw, heard, felt, and experienced have become my precious inspiration, helping me create more and more good work.
