Lights is a simple metaphor that visually examines all those feelings, dreams and possibilities that we unconsciously let go of during our life as we slowly adapt to what surrounds us. Step by step we leave behind our true selves, something that slowly fades away in the background, like a shadow we only half remember. When our time comes to move on, if we finally look back to what could have been, we may think “what if…”
Lights is made in traditional 2D on dedicated softwares. Some elements, like the house, are being designed in 3D and digitally painted in order to match the aesthetic of the short film.
