About this submission
It was June of 2020; three months into the pandemic. I was bored, confused, and had spent too much time with myself. I also wanted to make something extraordinary. Limitations pushed my mind to come up with expressive visuals that communicated my feelings, emotions, worries, and memories. For this film, I used shots, color, music, and editing in a different way than usual.
Tiko was almost entirely made by my subconscious. At some point, I was doubting if I would be understood, but then I decided to make the film for myself. That decision gave me complete freedom.
