In directing the animated short film "How is your Day," my aim was to delve into the intricate tapestry of memories, emotions, and human connections. Drawing inspiration from the profound impact of personal experiences and the stories I pen down in my journal, I sought to create a visual and emotional journey that resonates with audiences on a deep level.
The film's core revolves around the universal themes of nostalgia, self-discovery, and the courage to confront the present. By seamlessly intertwining vivid dreams, poignant recollections, and the persistent question "How was your day?" I aimed to blur the boundaries between memory and reality, inviting viewers to contemplate their own journeys and the moments that shape their lives.
Being a storyteller, I've always been captivated by the power of visuals and narratives to evoke change and forge connections. With "How is your Day," I aspired to challenge both myself and the audience, to explore the human capacity for resilience and growth. As a director, my passion lies in not just telling a story, but in crafting an immersive experience that lingers in the minds and hearts of those who engage with it.

Through the medium of animation, I aimed to bring Maya's narrative to life in a way that sparks introspection, empathy, and a renewed appreciation for the present moment.
