My Parent, Neal is a short documentary about director Hannah Saidiner and her parent as they discuss her parent’s gender transition.

Saidiner describes her creative process as such:

“The film was made using a combination of rotoscoped and hand-drawn animation. Frames were first drawn digitally in TVPaint, then printed out. Each frame was colored by hand with colored pencil and watercolors, at 1/4 of their original scale in size. This scale change then heightened the tangibility and texture of the coloring materials when scanned and enlarged to fit the screen.”
