HOW DID YOU GET THE IDEA OF THE STORY?

I wasn’t shaving for quite a while for my short film “Can Love Survive Corona?”. Once the shoot was over I thought to get a clean shave which I always prefer. All of a sudden a thought came in my mind that how about using this transformation of my beard look to the clean shaved one. Then after a deep thought the idea clicked that I can represent the transformation in a magical way.
