The Windmill Farmer

The Windmill Farmer from Joaquin Baldwin on Vimeo.

"A nurturing farmer in is danger of losing his crop of windmills when he struggles against the cyclical forces of nature.
Created at the UCLA Animation Workshop, with music by Nick Fevola.
This film was inspired while driving back from a trip to Palm Springs, when my partner said that it must take them forever to plant and grow so many windmills. I wrote down the title The Windmill Farmer for an idea to explore later, and about a year later I started developing it into a character and story.
This film took 4 months to complete from the first boards until the final mix."
