Jacob and Kate are brother and sister. He is an artist. She is an actress(t). Observing some of Jacobs drawings gave me the idea to involve him in the process of making this film as part of the story. I sat them down and began teaching them both about how comic book drawings are just like storyboarding a movie. I asked Jacob if he wanted to be my storyboard artist for their film. His eyes lit up. He instantly grabbed some paper and got to work. I could see his excitement as he sketched out the first frame; a trampoline. The story you see on film is taken from the creative visual frames of his storyboard. Jacob is 7 years old. Sister Kate is 4, and insisted her character to be known as ‘Hanna’ in this movie. She is a comic, a muse, and a delight. This short was one of my favourite shoots so far this year.
