I Think I Love You is an impressive graduation film by BFA 3 character animation student Xiya Lan for the California Institute of the Arts, showing the different ways people express love. Via Design Taxi:
People often associate the universal language of love to romance and butterflies in the stomach, when there’s so much more to that. Love comes in many disguises that’ll make you feel and hurt in different ways.
Xiya Lan’s final film at the California Institute of Arts is an adorably apt depiction of the many facets of love. From parents’ nurture of children to childhood friendships and harmful adult relationships, the film runs the gamut between heartwarming and heartbreaking.
