The Story of a Story is an attempt to translate the love and effort we put into every film we make.
The idea came while we were talking about how hard it can be for outsiders to understand the workflow behind what we do.
It can all seem a bit too magical and otherworldly (because in a way it is), but it’s also a damn serious process.
We wanted to explain how each step leads to another in the twist of a story and have fun with loads of different animation techniques.
An ode to our own job, ‘cause that’s how much we love it!

The project speaks of the subject of motherhood. Behind every extraordinary story is always a mother’s story, because hers is where ours begins. The project's purpose is to give mothers chances to speak of what goes on in side the mother’s heart. The animation explores deeper into their fear, their endurance, their strength, and their experience of being a mother. Through out the first 6 months of my senior year, I collected different letters from various mothers who commit to write a letter to their children. These mothers come from every walk of life.
This motion piece brings pieces and highlights of these letters together and presents it in an emotional and aesthetic way. The motion piece show cases beautiful design and strong cinematography through illustration. Landscapes and elements in this animation was inspired by places that my own mother and I use to visited when I was little. The project was produced as my thesis project at SCAD- Savannah college of art and design
