Green living is about making mindful decisions.
Every single moment, countless decisions are made all over the world, and like with the butterfly effect, the smallest and seemingly unimportant decisions can have huge ramifications for our future. Environmental protection is about making smart and fulfilling choices in our daily lives. But the main concern of this film is not to show people in exact detail how to live an environmentally friendly life, but rather to encourage them to closely examine their own attitude, and make them realize how all our choices and decisions will eventually affect the fate of our entire planet.
“When I was making this animated film, I felt an incredible surge of creative energy, because Mother Nature inspired me and revealed herself to me in myriad ways. I used a whiteboard for the making of this animation, a very interesting medium with a low carbon footprint (since no actual paper is needed for the drawings). So I only employed computers to apply the final touches and merge the drawings into coherent sequences. Mostly, however I’ve tried to preserve that special feeling that hand-drawn pictures have, and I hope that the ideals of a return to nature and a simple life have found an adequate expression in the film’s traditional feel and style.”
