We wanted our movie to be like a dream, a reflection of past thoughts. We filmed the same window from different angles. We repeated some of the scenes and slowed some of them to make it dreamlike. In the procedure of making this film, we had the idea of the echo effect in the background music. The echo is a reflection of sound. Marisa and I were the composers and the musicians. It may only look like a window and some flowers but this film is actually more than that.
This year some of our students will be creating animations, videos or games for a National Competition. This year’s theme is REFLECTION.

The actors and voices, are my daughter and her friend, both called Violet.
It is down at the local creek one lazy morning. The sounds are from nature.
