Director Statement

There are objects we take for granted because they've been part of our daily lives since we can remember. They're so well designed, modern technology hasn't been able to improve them. The humble pencil is one of them. The pencil is an extension of our brain.

The film "Doodle" explores that very personal connection. The pencil comes alive and replaces the invisible individual that controls it. It follows its own line, discovering itself in the process, and others as it draws its own future. Simple lines become complicated thoughts. One pencils becomes many. It's the ultimate team work.

Statement from Mo:
This special film is based on the lifelong work of my father, Carlos Caicedo. He's well known in the photography industry for his work with pencils and paper, it was an honor to work with him to bring his work to life. Here's a link to his work online:
