Director Statement

As the Director, my inspiration for the film came from my love of fairytale films, especially those from Hayao Miyazaki, and how he is able to express the environment in collaboration with both the fear and wonder of the unknown that comes with change, culminating in a wondrous tale of coming of age. However unlike Miyazaki, I attempted to translate that sense of age fear of the unknown into that of a live action, hoping to use slightly heightened expressions from the cast, rather than relying on the actor’s own preference.

The score was inspired by the use of generic fairy tale score, with an emphasis on the use of naturalistic sounds of string instruments, which are able to generate both fears, as well as intrigue about the events unfolding within the world of Luna.
