In 2013, West worked with Lauren E. Taylor to produce the short film, Estefan, about the world's greatest hair dresser who faces the challenge of a client with no hair. Estefan won first place in the Animation category of the 34th College Television Awards. The following year, West completed a project entitled Amiens Cathedral: City of God. This project, which was funded by the Laycock Center for Creative Collaboration in the Arts, produced a 3D image replica of the Amiens Cathedral. West was mentored by BYU professors Seth Holladay and James Swensen.
