MORE ABOUT THE FILM
We aim to create a story that resonates with an audience from all kinds of life. Paired with the fictional setting, it allows for more than one form of interpretation.
Why The Children Book Aesthetic:
While appealing to children, we also wish to let adults revisit simplicity in a complicated world. To let them sit down and enjoy a light hearted animation and bring them back to their care free childhood. The Timmy’s Monster crew aimed to do so by creating unique, life-giving brushstrokes and texture sets; in hopes of breathing life into each element on screen.
