Teenage boy Victor and his crush Emily; a bouquet of roses and a missing hair pin; an unrequited love with frustration and a bunch of glowing golden butterflies to cheer up; "Lost and Found" is a thesis film created with the intention of evoking the audience with the innocence and puppy love that he or she may once have had. With this idea the story surrounds a boy named Victor and his determination to impress his classmate, Emily, as he tries his best to win Emily's heart. The aftermath of an unsuccessful courtship brings about a surreal life experience of Victor that teaches him how to stand up again from where he fell. The film is an animated story in the form of 3D Computer Graphics, with the use of Autodesk Maya. The main focus of this movie is to show the technique of texture making and the spectrum of rendering skills. The following thesis report explores the concentration and the realization of this thesis project, both aesthetically and technically.
