Sonder is a film that explores the intensity and range of emotions following the end of a relationship. We all have seen many movies that focus on how a couple either met or ended their relationship. We want to tell a story that centers on the emotional journey after a breakup. Love can put you in a vulnerable state. Yet, such vulnerability allows us to feel more deeply and, most importantly, allows us to grow. We hope that this film will inspire viewers to look forward and not be afraid of the path that lies ahead.
One of the most innovative aspects of our film's production is that we use Unity to render in real time. Our goal is to push this technology so that viewers can no longer distinguish between a film that was made in Hollywood versus a film that was made in a game engine. Regardless of how Sonder is made, we hope that people will fall in love with Finn as much we have and experience his journey.
