The animators filmed paper cut-outs on layers of glass to achieve the rich, textured visuals

When the day breaks ( Visual )
3 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"After witnessing the accidental death of a stranger, Ruby seeks affirmation in the city around her, and finds it in surprising places. With deft humor and finely rendered detail, 'When the Day Breaks' illuminates the links which connect our urban lives, while evoking the promise and fragility of a new day. Co-directors Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis use pencil and paint on photocopies to achieve a textured look suggestive of a lithograph or a flickering newsreel. In 'When the Day Breaks', the ordinary--a lemon, a toaster, a chance collision on a street corner--is endowed with a visceral power. A film without words."--Container
