Director Statement:
I would like to shed some light on one of my old sweet animation I manage to create at school in Norway, Vivid Memories! What I really wanna to do here is to “rebirth” or more and less revive it and try to see if it have some cute power left for more festivals.

Vivid Memories is an old cute school project I did in 2014-2016, but were first finalized spring 2017. The main area was to learn lipsync and all the basics of creating a stop motion puppet and in the end of course animate. I had this idea of either using a child voice or and old person and in the end I manage to get hold of Nik and Nancy, and of all surprises Nancy basically gave me her own voice, which made me very happy in the end ^^ ...All hugs for both of you! ^^

To have no direct planing of what to expect I must say the voice I got from Nancy and my animation of a penguin, it do gives a sence of history and a real feeling of an old memory emerging from the youth.

~ Cheers!
