Inspirations for the Film idea inspired from one of the Images provided (the first image)
Peter Pan’s Shadow, Lucky Luke’s Shadow and Dr Facilier’s Shadow from Princess and the Frog. Shadows with minds of their own. Interacting with their counterpart, interacting with life. distorting shapes etc.
Shadow puppets. With cutouts and people.
Prismo from The Adventure Time. Shadow beings from Spirited Away.
A Pixelation test I did with using shadows.
