Director Statement

I am delighted to present to you easily, one of the most ambitious undergraduate animated films in Midlands, England. Prepare to be stunned by the scale of the project as well as remarkable attention to detail, and left wandering how could a single person pull this off? Above all, it is an enchanting story which kids and adults alike will surely enjoy.

Kind Regards
