From very long time I'd like to do something creepy and thrillery, but I was knew that horror genre is one of the hardest to create - especially in animation. For me it was a big trail and I was deliberate, what exactly scares me the most? I've discovered, that my biggest afraid aren't ghosts or possession - I've discovered that my the biggest fear is living by my own without any support from any friends. So I made film about it, and I am not proud of it.
For the first time I decided to cooperate with someone, who knows how to do sound-design better than me. I had a bad experiences with it, so I didn't want to flaw my another project again. I also asked for cooperation a composer I had found in the Silent Hill's fansite, when I was a kid. A QDC. Since that time I just really wanted to use his music in some of my future project. I just loved that ambient sounds.
It was variation between my beloved 3d and maybe for first - a 2d animation technique. I started from 2d-animated textures and reached at 2d-animated parts of main character. And it became a really big riddle, how to exactly build-up character who's looks like a drawn-one? I cannot make another smoothie model, cause each edges could looks just falsely. But when I cut it for a lot of puzzles with no contact with each other - it worked.
