originally, it was just scripted to be “the cave is empty again”.
but i thought it would be more interesting to have some sort of fog/gas seeping out. because it evokes the knock out gas. and the clouds. maybe? (although, admittedly, I’m not planning to do anything with this fog. it’s just creepy).
watched Paprika for the second time tonight. LOVED IT. dunno why people were so hard on it. might be one of the best cartoons i’ve ever seen. A captured dream indeeeeeed.
