“I guess the main mistake is to think that there is only one solution. It’s a language with some rules, but the combination of shots is infinite. That’s why it’s so creative. The other main trap would be to not be too curious and not look around other cultures and arts. That’s why I try to push a live-action cinematographic style in my animation work, mostly inspired by movies and photography and not only animation.”
