i want to write a movie about a girl with depression who meets a boy and they become friends and thats it. he’s just another friend. she goes to therapy and learns to love herself and saves herself. because thats how it happens. thats real life. you’re the hero. you can save yourself.
I really like people like you.
It was a moment Anthony Carbajal will never forget: standing on the stage of one of TV’s most popular talk shows, fighting for a cause that touches him and his family profoundly. All while his mom looked proudly on.
the fact that being considered a victim is in and of itself enough to not merit sympathy is an amazing trick being played on us.
if you need help. if you need empathy. if you need people to care about what happened to you and if you name what happened to you as a terrible thing, or a crime, or an injustice then you’re just victimizing yourself and don’t deserve any of the things you need.
and of course, if you don’t ask for help then getting it can be a struggle! but asking for help means you don’t really deserve it because good victims just wait and will, eventually, be helped according to some random karmic justice that you are assured over and over again will happen because that’s how the world works.
being a victim isn’t a bad thing and is never your fault.

Was there some sort of special animation for this movie because it has never looked quite like other animation.
It was almost entirely rotoscoped, if that’s what you mean? That means it was drawn on top of live action film, which is how they got the realistic subtleties.
Whoa, that’s so cool. Wow.
And this, ladies and gentlemen, is rotoscoping done fantastically right.
Because all you really need to do is find some cheap animation produced by lesser-to-completely-unknown studios to see how horribly disturbing rotoscoping is when the artist cannot animate very well; if the frame rate is too slow? It looks jerky, choppy, and repulsively unnatural. It leaps right into the uncanny valley and sets up house there.
The NYPD stepped into it big time after forcefully arresting a woman for standing outside a restaurant. She also happens to be a human rights attorney. Oops.
I’m looking forward to authoritarian personality types trying to figure out a way to blame her for you know…being arrested for waiting for her family outside of a restaurant.
Nevermind the “free advice” the arresting officer gives about being “in America”.
