As you can see, it was roughly put together, but it opened up an endless amount of possibilities. It felt like my imagination was the only limit to the stories that could be created.
And that was a vital amount of hope needed at a time when the pandemic was raging all around us.
You can choose your own background for the snow globe–as you are allowed to remix this for your projects. One of the trickier things for me was key framing everything to move and scale together. I was still new to that work, and it is thanks to this moment and so many more in the film that I am more skilled in this area.
