Press Release from Superfad
Superfad's short film "Preguntas Hermosas" evokes a time that was shared between two people, told through a combination of "Poema X" by Pablo Neruda and "Under the Harvest Moon" by Carl Sandburg. It unfolds in three parts: a fond remembrance, loss, and acceptance.
"We really wanted to capture something in a traditional, filmic sense," says Director David Viau. "So often with CG you're tempted to do crazy, dramatic camera moves and seamless shots that go on forever, but this felt like it needed to be shot in a manor that could be achieved if this surreal world actually existed."
