InWords / The word inside Shani

'InWords' is a short film based on a short story called 'Shani's Word'. It is a fantastical journey tale about a boy that has a word growing in his stomach and the quest to release it out into the world.

The film, throughout this poetic yet humorous metaphor, tells a story about self-expression, creation and transformation. It deals with the tender and complex relationship between ones inner world and the outer one. It is a cross-genre film with a parallel storyline, each has its unique visual language, rhytm and atmosphere and yet, weaved carefully into one absorbing and coherent entity.

The imagery will be constructed from unusual combinations of various animation techniques and live action.
