The film tells the heartbreaking story of mother whose daughter recently passed away and take the audience through her journey of loss and acceptance. The visuals strike a balance between the innocence of childhood and the simple joys in life through colorful minimalistic design and animation.  The score, primarily written for solo piano, winds and orchestra follows that concept and the various emotions portrayed in the film. The soloists were recorded in by in Los Angeles and the strings were performed by the Budapest Film Orchestra

Our film focused on a touchy subject and we understood the difficulty of visually conveying it in a beautiful way. However, because there was little dialogue, stimulating our audience’s auditory senses was just as important but twice the challenge. Jerome engaged himself so much to build a strong bridge between our film and the audience’s hearts. He meticulously considered each scene and created a score that constantly submerged us into a deeper level of emotion. We could not have had anyone else as exceptionally talented and diligent as Jerome in conveying the sentimental essence of Hanami.

At SVA Computer Art we produce over sixty short films and animations each year. The first challenge of a short film is to strike a chord with the viewer quickly then enforce the emotions of the film. Jerome Leroy has contributed to the very best of our films with his patience and professionalism. He has the ability to underscore a film’s brightest and darkest moments while providing the thematic continuity it requires.
