“Undone is a half-hour, genre-bending, animated series that explores the elastic nature of reality through its central character Alma, a twenty-eight-year-old living in San Antonio, Texas. After getting into a car accident and nearly dying, Alma finds she has a new relationship to time. In Season Two, Alma realizes there may be deeper mysteries in her family’s past. She crusades to uncover truths that could reshape her present-day reality.”
Constance Marie’s daughter, Luna-Marie Katich, makes a special appearance in the show as young Alma.
Hisko Hulsing achieves an ‘almost real’ look by composing layers of rotoscope animation drawn frame by frame, oil paintings as backgrounds and 3D effects.
In an interview with Rama’s Screen, Rosa Salazar explained that the use of rotoscope animation made acting incredibly different and challenging as there was no practical environment and the actors had to mostly rely on their imagination. She also stated that the lack of need for costumes and makeup allowed the crew enough time to go through 10-20 pages a day.
Alma (Rosa Salazar) convinces her sister, Becca (Angelique Cabral), to join her in testing the limits of reality by exploring the expanse of timelines and memories. The pair unearth the generational trauma hidden in their family’s past.
