Project has initially concept to be a dramedy about one-way space trip adventure just for the few people. And the main characters were still the same as in a final movie. But because of a husband's forgetfulness, he lost his ticket and didn't go.
Project has started in the end of 2015 and changed many times. Final concept has appeared just after watching a matriosha scene in The OA Netflix's original series. That was gave me a reason to think about something more than a just separated couples.
From very beginning I was so sure, that I want to use a camera in this movie. It was something new for me to implement to 2d animation. But I wanted to keep it looking like a careless hand-made drawings just by using two basic colors.
Before I had a final storyline, I started to animate some scenes from basic version - to show my supervisor, how this movie should really look like. There were a lot of scenes, when you can see main couple in one house together, with eating dinner, packing suitcases or watching TV, and also some in a space too. There were almost one minute of animation I decided to remove. Unluckily.
