2019 saw the release of my animated short film titled “Deep Water,” which is based on a dream. The film tells the story of a solitary individual living in an isolated location, inspired by the town of Deep Water in the New England High Country. The plot centers around the unexpected arrival of a stranger, who is connected to a television show, at the protagonist’s door, in search of something unusual. In terms of visual style, the film features a limited pastel color palette for the backgrounds, while the character animation was influenced by BBC animated productions of the 70s and 80s, as well as the works of film maker David Firth. This marks my second animated short film that has been inspired by my dreams and it was an interesting and unique experience for me to explore this method of storytelling in animation.
