Director Statement

After a long searching of the story for the first film, I decide to keep it simple as possible. The main goal was not to create something deep and smart, but just to try the whole process of creating a movie and see how it works. After getting the same experience I decide to take it as a base for the story and later improve it by passing time. It was very tricky without any knowledge, manipulate a script. But in the visual part, I was sure how it should look like. As being an artist I did a lot of concept art, sketches, and even animation to understand how scenes are working. VFX I decide to do by myself to control the whole visual aspect. The story and main character are based on my observation of my friends . The main question for me is disapproval of somebody. Here the main character is the only one who looks happy and bright but why she is happy, gives us dissonance and everybody decides on their own.
