Animation brings a certain magic to dramatic storytelling. With animation, it's a different kind of immersion where you kind of accept the world of colours and music and sound and expression, and you just become completely lost in it. Opting to make Charlotte in 2D, the more traditional technique where almost everything is drawn, is another way to stay true to Salomon. Charlotte's artwork is graphic in a sense, where she didn't try to replicate a shadow and depth and form in a three dimensional way. Charlotte didn’t use the color black in her artwork. She used dark blues and other dark colors, but never black. So there's actually no black in the film, which is very unusual for animation. When you can actually watch somebody on screen going through it, you connect to the story on a different level than just reading about it in history books. We all know what hope is. We all know what hope feels like, but when hope feels real and reliable, that’s a personal experience. Hope is being able to see that there's light despite all of the darkness. So, hope isn't rainbows and unicorns. It's finding the courage to see beauty despite suffering. Despise that darkness, it's not whether life loves you, it's whether you love life.
