Director's statement
Tiptoe is a story based on my childhood memories. I have worked as a private tutor for children since university and realized that no matter what social background the children are in, they all have something want to express that is not easy for adults to notice. Therefore, I was determined that if I have a chance to work on my first film, I will make my memories into a short film as a means of safekeeping and organization the memories of yesteryear, before I get too far away from childhood. Even though everyone faces the separations in life alone, but because of this film, I am grateful for all the strangers to accompany the little girl of yesteryear on her journey.
