«I work on my short animated film about endless emigration and a delayed life. I have a lot to say about this topic, as I have been searching for two and a half years for a home for my family. For my film I make the script, character and background design, storyboarding and compositing. While participating in the BONFIRE residency, I focused on creating backgrounds. I painted them in watercolor and then finalized them digitally».
