Orientation Center for the Unseen is a one-and-a-half minute animated short, a project that we, as a group of four MFA students at DigiPen Institute of Technology, started as our thesis project. Later on, we expanded the project with four more volunteers from our undergraduate department.
The story is about Ted, a young man going through a period of serious changes in the afterlife. The Orientation Center for the Unseen is there to help him to get through it. We picked a 1960's PSA-style theme about puberty and developed our ideas around it.

Book design — The art of Orientation Center for the Unseen
The Art of OCU shares an insight into the creative process and technical challenges that team Magnus Effect faced, featuring character sketches, color scripts, environment designs and behind the scenes post production process. This project evolved within the course of a year, while the team’s experience and problem solving skills in the digital animation pipeline evolved as well. Hopefully, this visual journey will inspire readers and fellow artists to tell their own stories, and give them an insight into the work that goes into their own creative feats.
