Director Statement

I made “The Snow Man” in order to start learning animation, and what began in February of 2020 as a story of loss and grief was distilled down to the feeling of loneliness, something I have struggled with a lot over the year 2020. Since I was young I felt a deep connection with the old Charlie Brown specials, with their plain portrayal of melancholy and loneliness that can be felt even during happy seasons. However, those specials also bring glimmers of hope that always encourage me to keep pushing on. With those animated specials as a guide in both style and theme, I sought to tell a story that reminds people it is possible to find charm, companionship, and contentedness even when the surroundings seem harsh and empty. It is a reminder that I desperately need now and then.
