"This thesis focuses on the process about how to present a story with traditional pop-up book concept, advanced computer graphics and animation technology by an individual artist. Maya allows an artist to create modeling, rigging, shading, lighting and rendering. However, in order to create an animation, imagination, teamwork, planning, and time management are the most important elements to compelling and original storytelling."
