A Brief Interview with Chloe:
Why did you decide to make this film?
I made this film because I wanted to tell a love story in my own voice. I think that as we grow our idea of love shifts. It was important for me to create a piece that showed my interpretation of love at that moment in my life.
What was your favorite part about making it?
There were so many magical moments. I enjoyed seeing the wonderful animation that Katelyn Rebelo created and also letting Lyndsey Bourne take the reins with the voice over.
What are you working on now?
I'm working on a short film right now! We are going to film this summer in North Carolina.
