A Neil Gaiman-penned short film about a girl who tries not to flyS

In a world where some children are able to fly, one girl is placed in an institution until she learns to keep her feet on the ground. She spends her life trying to be normal, even when a romance prompts her unleash her special talent.

Fashion designer Georgina Chapman directed the short film A Dream of Flying, written by Neil Gaiman, for Canon's Project Imagination (which, incidentally, spawned Jamie Foxx's bonkers Frankenstein short). Each director was invited to use user-submitted photographs as inspirations for their films. You can see the ten photos that inspired this short over at the Project Imagination website. This short could use a bit more texture in its fairytale, but it's a sweet story with some neat visual moments.
