This Short is a fun J.M Barrie Inspired script. This will be a 3 minute short for the Digi60 Filmmakers' Festival in Ottawa with potentially of being submitted in other festivals. I'll be working closely with Wildling Tramp Jewelry to make this project a beautifully unique art piece. Looking for some talented crew, particularly students or recent grads that would be willing to help me.
