Director Statement

I made this animation after a friend told me his dream of that night, about a world where men are fish and women butterflies. I thought the song could fit really well the emotions of the story, so I edited the images in order to make them fit with the music. I used photoshop to edit the pictures and Avid Media Composer to adjust the pace of the animation. My aim was to experiment with this idea and see how I could make this dream real and visible to other people.
