The Netflix doc-series, "Daughters of Destiny" directed by Vanessa Roth, chronicles the lives of five aspiring students from impoverished families in India. Our animated trailer visualizes a heartfelt poem by one of its main characters, Preetha. To convey her powerful words, we drew from its dreamlike message and landscape, choosing watercolors to paint our characters and sets. Each detail of Preetha's poem was hand-painted and animated using traditional stop motion techniques, calling back to the delicacy of her experience.
So glad that the voices of these young women are being heard, and so very honored to take part in sharing their story.
