I love animation, photography and exploring on my bike. The idea of combining these three to make a film really got me going. However what really inspired me was this willow tree last summer. It was really dancing like a human, dancing as if it was moving on its own. It gave me this idea of how interesting it could be to see things move to a different rhythm, especially inanimate objects like buildings or statues.
