About this submission
"The Red Balloon" was one of the first films I remember watching in school, first or second grade. I chose to write an outline for Jeremy, based on his normal behavior to create something that didn't feel like he was playing a character. I was always drawn to films that feel like they're set during the best time of the day: right after work or school lets out. I graduated college in December and was given a balloon in the shape of a "J." It sat in my room. I stared at it everyday until a story started to form.
