‘Mâché Man’ is the enchanting tale of 8-year-old Cleo, a girl trapped by the closed-minded lethargy of her parents. Unable to venture outside and play with the other children, lonely Cleo builds herself a life-sized papier-mâché man. But as she feeds her new friend with undying devotion, he begins to breathe and come to life, unleashing a world outside her parents restrictions.

With its themes of youth, creation and freedom, writer/director Sophie Boyce is passionate about bringing the charm back to live-action family films. The story draws off references such as ‘E.T’ and ‘the Snowman’ and is led by a vibrant young cast, quirky humour and heart-warming storytelling. Combined with a unique soundtrack sung by children, this is set to be a unique and enchanting new short.
