Here it is - my thesis project!

This is a trailer for an animated series based on the Hawaiian myth of Pele, the volatile volcano goddess, and her loyal younger sister, Hi‘iaka, who is born out of an egg. Pele travels across the ocean from the land of the gods, and finds a home in Hawaii, where her sister Hi‘iaka’s adventures begin.

Although this isn’t a real show, I made this with the belief that the myth would make a fantastic animated series. It’s full of colorful episodes of girls fighting monsters in the lush, semi-mystical land of Hawaii in the time of the gods. Plus, its focus on complex relationships between sisters and female friends makes it an empowering story for girls.

Pele….and…HI‘IAKA!
