Jellyfish are the oldest multi-organ animal and Eloise just failed her biology test today.

Jellyfish really stayed with me, even after a few watches. The subtlety, the poetry, and the very beautiful way it moves between the mundane and life-changing really struck a chord.

After watching my little sister cope with the loss of our dad I wanted to make a small film touching on grief without it being totally focussed on that as a subject, and to create a little insight into her thoughts at the time.
