Animated Short Explores A Family Tradition Of Giving In “Something About A Flower: The Fortune We Share”

By Rodney Lambright II and Brandon Ribordy | November 24, 2017


Something About a Flower: The Fortune We Share is an animated short focused on the perspective of a young girl named Rose and her family’s traditional Sunday dinner that takes a turn for the unexpected. This animation is an adaption of the comic strip “Something About a Flower” created by Rodney Lambright II featured on Wisconsin Life’s e-newsletter and website. Lambright’s opportunity to produce the animated short has given him the ability to connect the narrative from the comic strip to the animation making an interesting transmedia storytelling experience.
