This is the full extended version of the film I had the honor of making for the National Space Society to promote NASAs New Horizons spacecraft and its historic reconnaissance mission to Pluto and its system of moons on July 14 2015 - the very first exploration of this system in human history.
I got to work closely with the missions principal investigator Alan Stern and I am grateful for his and the rest of his team's confidence in me to make this film.

    What do astronauts dream of? How do they feel while they float above the clouds? In 1991 Helen Sharman became the first Briton in space; in this animation, hand-drawn by Ri animator-in-residence Andrew Khosravani, Sharman shares a dream she often has about returning to space, and talks about what it’s like to gaze down on the earth from above.

    Here is a film we worked on with Taproot India for Times Lit Fest - Delhi. With this film, we want to illustrate the joys of literature but set that in a context that is quintessentially Delhi - much like the festival itself.
