Director Statement

I love the idea of taking myths such as Vittra, that give barely enough information or explanation to understand in any solid form, and bringing them to life by twisting them into a wonderful, imaginative stories with interesting character backgrounds and details that draw you in. My animation style is predominantly 2D, but I think it would be even more exciting to begin to morph the depth of these created worlds with 3D CGI and stop motion.
