Lia and friends didn't always look like this! We spent a lot of time exploring different styles for the film. Under the guidance of our advisors, we were encouraged to keep pushing what the film could look like.

Color script for the film. We took inspiration from various K-Pop music videos.

Our fictional K-Pop group, SYNE. We took elements from all of our favorite groups and created our group. In K-Pop culture, the lightstick represents the love and dedication a fan has for the group. The lightstick was an important part of the film and we wanted it to represent our group well.
