Using nostalgia as fuel for the future.

In this frame-by-frame animation based on personal feelings about nostalgia, 11-year-old Esmée writes a letter to her future self in which she shares all her hopes and dreams for the future. We go back to the year 2011 to explore the most wondrous and important memories, which became turning points in her life.

“Dear Future Self” not only serves as a warm blanket of nostalgia but shares an important message as well. When looking to the past, it’s important to not only cherish your greatest memories, but your toughest ones as well. Because after all, they helped shape you into the person you are today.
