A young boy with an over-active imagination, obsessed with origami cranes, a disapproving older sister and a window lead to a tragic finale.
Music is 'Wait' by M83, my favourite band, form their album 'Hurry Up, We're Dreaming'.
Shot over two days at the actor's house, originally edited in 8 hours under exam conditions, with extensive use of the 'Lens Whacking/Free Lensing' effect, then finalised and polished with added 3D effects over the course of several weeks once I met my Art AS Level exam deadline.
Unfortunately ran out of time for the final effect at the end which would have had CGI 3D cranes flying round the boy's room with him, flying out the window and leading to his jump. Technical issues and a lack of time meant I couldn't fit this in.
