One More Time Short Film

The film, One More Time, is a letter of encouragement from the Superhero Me community, created during the early period of COVID 19 quarantine. It is also a period where the sense of a human touch is very much needed as everything had to go contactless and digital. To align with this personal and sincere nature of the content, a handmade approach that embraces human imperfection was utilized to create an intimate appeal with an added sense of warmth and familiarity to connect with the viewers. Bright and saturated colors filled the visuals more than dark colors to emphasize the theme of hope.
