The project was born from the desire to create an animated music video about the environment, bringing people together with this common concern. Musicians from Belgium and Portugal got together, and starting with a few guitar chords, each began to make their contribution, and joined improbable instruments. In parallel, students from 4 nationalities studying in Re:Anima International Master Degree, formed the animation team. We were still at the beginning of the year and from different corners of the world, ideas, drawings, references were shared, giving shape to a project without a budget, just with the desire to make it grow with the same esteem that we have for our planet. Today we have a film that talks about a journey, a journey that makes us question between what is happening to our planet and what we can still do for it.
