Chaisi Glover answered a few questions.
What inspired your film?
My film was inspired by my partner; he has a bad habit of twisting his hair, and I’ll find little hair knots when cleaning the apartment. I questioned what would happen if they sprung to life one day, and if so would they take on certain neurosis? And so the idea for my film was born.
What was your biggest challenge in making your film?
The biggest challenge for me was the learning curve of 3D animation and the technical challenges that come with it. There was a great deal of trouble shooting especially while trying to achieve the groom for the hair, which of course is essential to the plot of the film.
What was the best part of the experience for you?
I think the best part was the satisfaction of creating it independently. To put so much time and energy into it, and to actually be able to see the characters come to life is incredibly rewarding.
What advice would you give aspiring filmmakers?
Try to surround yourself with people who inspire and encourage you. Even though I made this film by myself, I still had other people around to offer constructive feedback and keep me grounded throughout the process. Nothing happens in a vacuum.
What’s next for you?
I am currently in the pre-production phases of a short animated film with an old friend and classmate. We hope to have the film more fleshed out in the coming year.
