‘A girl, more eagle than human, must decide between a life on the wing and her humanity when a stranger arrives on the tide.’
In 2016, I won a commission by the Scottish Film Talent Network to create a short animated film. The film was created by a small team, including myself as director and character animator, Anna Thomson as producer, Gavin Robertson and Mark Wagner creating additional background animation and Jamie Fraser as editor. We also had the wonderfully talented Mike Vass, create all the original music as well as John Cobban to create the soundscape.
The film premiered at the 71st Edinburgh International Film Festival and has since been selected for competition at Anima Mundi in Brazil, the Chicago International Children’s Film Festival, Anim’est in Romania, Cinekid in Netherlands, the London Short Film Festival, as well as many other fabulous festivals around the world. It was also nominated to receive the Scottish BAFTA for Best Animation in 2017.
