My name is Makenzie Gladstone. I’m a local that’s planning to stay local. I create not only for myself but for others. I seek to inspire and brighten the darkest of days. I find that animation above all else has this potential based on personal experience. A truly powerful art form capable of anything. Great works of animation pass beyond identity or language, easily able to provide the viewer comfort and escapism. So I seek to hone my skills and create wondrous fantasies through character. Character acting, storyboarding, and my personal favorite character design has and forever will be my biggest passions. Although, I always seek to expand my horizons with a great team of people.
