Director Statement

The making of this film started while I was still living in Canada. One of my closest friends and, in our spare time collaborators, told me about one of his dream, a man in a desert devoted to himself. We had a couple of long conversations about a possible feature film introducing this caveman in a contemporary city. I composed a storyboard which I sent to him. This project remains on hold for a few months. As I moved from Canada to Ireland, I fell back on these few frames I had drawn and started to continue this animation by giving it a new direction, Aum From Afar.
