MORRIS PARK - A professional doll and filmmaker from Morris Park is creating a short animated film that was inspired by two of her students.

Alba Garcia is using her handmade dolls in the short film "Time Space Reflections." Garcia says the film was inspired by two of her students, twins Emely and Katherine Gomez. Emely died last year at the age of 23 following a seizure.

The film's plot revolves around a girl who travels to another world to find her twin sister.

Garcia has been working on the film for the past year and says it will be released in the fall. She plans on submitting the film to different festivals around the world and will be submitting it for Academy Award consideration.
