The inspiration for this film came from working on the 48hour film challenge. I find the creative restrictions highly motivating, and so I decided to put myself through similar conditions. I gave myself 4 weekends (although I ended up doing 6) and asked a couple of friends to write a brief for me. The details of the brief were as follows:
The theme is Regret.
The protagonist is Jane Jay, whose power animal is a gibbon.
It must contain the prop: a stamp collection.
Use three seconds of stop-motion animation.
Choose ONE of the following sequences:
• Origin Story
• A Chase
• Training Montage
• Twist Reveal
