Story x Technology

The Adventures of Theo’s Star is also the inspiring story of a storyteller who met a technology that allowed him to pursue an idea and create something he never thought he could.

Matthieu Silberstein was an accomplished filmmaker but he had never worked on an animated film before. Even more, he had never drawn anything in his life before! But a story came to him when his first son was born (yes, his name is Theo!) and he needed to put it on the screen, somehow. So he picked up his iPad Pro and Apple Pencil. After hours, days, weeks of drawing, erasing, trying again, screaming into a pillow and resisting the urge to throw his device against the wall, he eventually got 1 picture right. At that point, he figured he should go ahead and draw the other 41 frames...

Months later, he sent a letter with a link to a work-in-progress to the agent of one of the greatest American voices of our time - a bottle at sea.

 

A few days later, the bottle came back...
