1. How did you come up with the concept for this short?

I read 100% women, the Haruki Murakami story which the film is based on, my freshman year in college and it changed my life. I loved it and was determined to make the story into a film the first chance I got. The idea to use stop motion for the montage sequence was foremost a practical decision. It would have been impossible to shoot it on film for logistical and financial reasons. Artistically, the use of photos to represent the past was almost a given.
