The Dressmaker is based on my mum's life. It's made in her honor and for those who suffer some memory loss disease as Alzheimer or similar,as well it's dedicated especially for the caregivers.
The Dressmaker sends a message of encouragement to face whatever bad situation people go through. We have to LEARN to appreciate and enjoy our precious time as everything around us.
Technique. Collage of media: mainly 2d animation, photography and some 3D. Color based on textiles and cut out style inspired from the old paper dolls.

It's a nice international team willing to achieve a nice story in the high quality that deserves.This short will be a good platform for them too .
Music and distribution. I need your HELP to fund an original score and distribute the short to as many festivals as possible. Music is the 50 per cent or more of a movie's to enhance the scenes ,to exalt the feelings, the no talk dialog , the climax. Phyllis Sues, great musician from LA , is helping me with some samples to figure out what she could do with another musician, Moses Sedler from San Francisco area.
Working Plan. Animation production:starts in February at the Open Workshop studio in Denmark June-August , Record the music and final version of the voice over in Los Angeles. Everybody who is around and want to meet us, you're welcome. September, corrections and editing .
Currently you are able to see the animatic ( preview of the animation showing keyframes and sketches)
Thanks so far for your time and pass this link to your friends, any pledge is appreciate.
