Fly away was part of a puppetry project in 2020. It was all undertaken in lockdown, across Teams and Zoom. 6 groups were given a species of animals as stimulus and told to make a film. Over the course of 10 weeks we designed, made, filmed and edited these films. My group was given birds and as group leader it was my job to curate and lead the story to this final product.
Fly Away tells the story of a boy who dreams of freedom and escapes to explore the world and follow his dreams through flight.
As group leader it was my job to direct and produce the whole film. But I also built and puppeteered the first section of the film witht the boy alone in his room.
