This was a book trailer project commissioned by the author Isabel Allende. 

In Isabel Allende’s latest novel Maya’s Notebook, like in all great novels, we feel the character’s thoughts and emotions inside our own heads. It was great to see how the SJSU students adapted Isabel’s work into visual storytelling – powerful images and transitions, beautifully done that can be seen and shared. Perhaps—inspiring others to read the book. Now I know how much more powerful animated features could be if we dared to approach more serious subjects!
