Director Statement

The Only Shot is a film about a young boy who explores the world through his imagination. His dream is to become a hunter because he thinks that will make him a real man. The film shows a darker side of childhood life in the countryside and early acquaintance with death and the consequences of the behaviour.

The film was made using traditional 2D techniques in digital software such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe After Effects. Both (real and imaginary) worlds are separated by visuals and sound. The real world is inspired by the Lithuanian countryside landscape. Boy's imagination takes place in imaginary jungles that are also separated using traditional Lithuanian music.
