Director Statement

Hello to everyone who is interested in me. My name is Ksenia and I am glad to present to you my first cartoon. The movie was made as a final work on the course "Animation Artist" in @merinovschool
I love to create something, to give things a new life. The moment when a wool of thread turns into a scarf, a blank sheet into a picture, or some draw comes to life on the screen, I consider it magic. And these moments are worth living and working for.
Creativity has always helped me to survive, and my cartoon is about it.
