my thesis film.
the idea for this project grew from a single image in my head: a giant, brooding monster watching over a little girl outside her bedroom window. overall, i'm satisfied with it and glad i was able to finish such a large production, but i look back and i know i could've made it better. perhaps sometime in the future i'll remake it and do the story the justice it deserves. what i had planned is too heartfelt and epic for a short film.
still... my favorite aspect of the entire film is the music. once again it was composed by Derek Zhao, the man who did the score for "To The Sun". this time around we went for something more grand: a full orchestra (22 musicians i believe). the recording session was the most amazing part of the entire production and Derek did an excellent job interpreting the emotions i wanted into music.
