Toru tells the story of a young girl who must say goodbye to her dog. Based on true events.
This film was done as a solo project for university. I was required to make a personal short film, so I decided to base this story on my own experiences of having to leave my dog behind and some of the thoughts and events I went through as a child during this time. You can see some of my pre-production planning and research on the blog I created for this project: torufilm.tumblr.com
