Storyline

Taking Flight is a short film inspired by the life and heritage of Antonio Pasin, inventor of the Radio Flyer wagon. In this fictional tribute to Pasin's legacy, what begins as a small boy's over-scheduled, over supervised, boring day with Grandpa turns into a larger-than-life journey, narrowly escaping wild monkeys and battling aliens to save the universe. Through the power of imagination and epic adventure, a boy learns to be a kid, a father learns to be a dad, a grandpa reminds all of us what childhood is all about.

flavor of childhood
9 December 2018 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

For me, "Taking Flight" is a vehicle for return across the childhood memories. The figure of my grandparents, the presence of my father, the games and stories and jokes. The entire universe of childhood , presented in the smart manner. And the second basic virtue is the animation, the colors, the traits of characters and the wise use of imagination. Short - a great short animation. Lovely in high measure.
