In this dreamy stop-motion film, the ten-year-old Kevin dreams about becoming a pilot so he and his sister Jaimy can escape from their tyrannical father. But when Jaimy gets her hands on her brother’s brand new model airplane, the bond between the two children is put to the test. 

For this film I was responsible for making the aeroplane, among other props, and animated some of the shots.
