This short film is an animatic set to the ending of Jakob Ogawa's 'Let it Pass.' (The link to his song is attached below.) This animatic details the brief story of a woman reminiscing over the life of her late lover after her passing. I used "Let It Pass' because it's lyrically relevant to this idea. The Animatic is called 'Sappho' because the term pays homage to the famous Greek poet, Sappho, who was known for her incredible lyric poetry that involved heavy queer undertones.
