Director Statement

I think the beauty in this story comes from taking an innocent concept such as imagination and juxtaposing this with grief. It's easy to forget that children aren't always sheltered from these troubling emotions, and it was our goal to explore these feelings through an emotive, Pixar-esque short film. Many children and adults struggle to comprehend feelings of grief and I think this film can really help people to understand that. It explores how each individual expresses grief in their own way, yet through communication and empathy, we can all move forward together. I am more than excited to share this story with the world and I'm especially looking forward to attending film festivals to see the audience's response first-hand.
