Director Statement

My main and only goal with this short film was to provide a story in which my character "Tella" can play in. Tella is a little girl with a home and a whole other story behind her, but that is not relevant to the story that I made in that I chose to isolate her, catch her in a moment of her life where she was lost and away from everybody else. This is a choice I made primarily because I was working alone and didn't think it was possible for me to commit to an animated film where I had to animate all 5-6 characters by myself. This was a passion project and little to no sponsorship that can secure me artistic help was secured nor pursued as I did not think much of it. I am currently grateful to have had enough of my own money put to the side to be able to work with two other talents for sound and music, but that was it.

I chose her as my debut film to showcase primarily to myself and then hopefully to the world what ever talents or abilities that I have with regards to film and storytelling, and I must confess I have grown fond of her and I would like other people to know her and get curious about her as well.
