When I asked my mom to tell her story, I initially asked her to do it in English. When we started to do the first version, I realized she was getting nervous of making a mistake, so I asked if she wanted to tell it in Spanish, her mother tongue, to be more comfortable.

Style Frames

While listening to the audio, I realized the simplicity of the situation; a mother telling her daughter a memory from her childhood. I used the simplicity as my key guide to create the style frames. I incorporated light colored muted tones, simple shapes, and black and white images that would support the story line.


The animation style needed to match the rawness and dream like of the audio, so i went with a style that was more abrupt movements, and make it look like stop motion.
