Overview

Execution

The look of the film was designed to evoke

a gentle sense of nostalgia associated

with early childhood, with a softly muted

colour palette and long shadows that

could transition into the darkness and

desolation of the final scene, when the

light from the boy’s heart is finally lost. The

organic textures and painterly approach

added to that, with the imperfections

inherent in 1400+ hand painted frames

imbuing the film with a sense of naivete

and childlike appeal. The swirling

transitions tied everything together, as

they broke apart and reformed the boy’s

world in an endless loop that cannot be

stopped or slowed down, no matter how

much the mother wants to.
