Maybe is an animated short film by Sam Chou, co-produced by Style5 Animation and Chuck Gammage Animation. The film is narrated by Makayla MacLeod.
In Maybe, a young perspective in a changing world asks the question: Why are we so scared? This 2-minute animated short follows the relationship between our decisions that we make everyday and the impact they have on our world. This piece was produced to show young people that their actions are important and that they shouldn't be afraid.
In the words of the writer-director, "all of our efforts accumulate to something in the end. Even though we may not see it, everything we do amounts to something and we are all connected." This film touches upon a familiar issue that has greatly become a common theme in our daily lives.
