Video animation short "Wing It" by Jeanelize de Nys, Shani Campbell, Thea de Klerk, Kelly Walker, Shane Marks and Barry de Jager





Watch "Wing It" (8 minutes) award winning short film created by six students in South Africa, about a human obsessed with flying. After failed attempts to build a flying machine, and being ridiculed by the media, Sherman draws strength from the memories of his father to decide to Never Give Up. A group of Earth-friendly aliens, who have assisted in the creation of previous Earth interventions, decide to help. Two young alien recruits, Sizzle and Spark, are sent on their first mission and, while all does not go to plan, their clumsy attempt brings about a surprising result. YouTube viewing link

The idea for the short first came about when The Animation School final-year students Shani Campbell and Jeanelize de Nys started brainstorming ideas for a group project. “As two heads are always better than one, Jeanelize and I collaborated on two story concepts. In January this year the two of us sat in my back garden, where gradually ideas began to take shape. Wing It – or Anonymous Interventions, as it was originally called – very quickly became our favourite story." The first seed of inspiration for the story came from Hans Christian Anderson’s ‘Elves and the Shoemaker’. Jeanelize and Shani really liked the idea of an anonymous intervention helping someone in need. - Description from Kelly Walker, filmmaker
