What is the film about?

A young girl wakes to find herself surrounded by floating screens, visualising the outcome of every thought she has as she gets lost in a surreal world of missed opportunities.

What influenced it?

Multiverse theory, Black Mirror

A little background information...

The idea initially came from imagining the ability to be able to see each possible timeline through these weird omniscient windows in the future. Which developed into a character design with hovering screens connected to their back. I was then able to pitch the idea to Random Acts, this kind of gave me the ability to tell a completed story.

How was the film made?

2D animation was made in TVPaint while the 3D in Maya then it was all composed in After Effects.
