Director’s statement
The film focuses around the problem of cyberbullying, which is the modern version of a classic school bullying problem that was a big part of our lives growing up and going to school as serbian nationals in Croatia during the war. Today, both directors are fathers with little daughters, which again brings into focus this very real problem that can have devastating effects. We will capture the older audience with the films atmosphere, graphical quality, deep layered story and character definition. A story told through the eyes of kids, that talks about friendship and growing up in a world where you can so easily lose touch and be pushed into isolation. Its a story of finding your inner strength, forgiveness and friendship. We envision a film that has high artistic value, born from an expressive world of short animated films scene. It will be an atmospheric unique film with a lot of character and emotion.
