A tale about a little girl’s journey towards happiness, the purpose of goals and finding inner strength, in a world that is as real as a fake smile. A surreal piece with elements of symbolism and plenty of fish.
The use of surreal and symbolic elements in a 2D animation short, pushing the visuals and creating a scenario that animation can carry out best. An attempt to portray a modern day tale of how society has got lost in its pursuit of success as success has become the main criteria for happiness resulting in over consumerism and living in a fake bliss. Highly influenced by my journey to China and Asian culture in which the Koi Fish is a symbol of happiness and fortune.
