This is a wonderful short!
4 December 2017 | by owens-richardSee all my reviews

This is a touching short story about a boy named Lucas (Noah Schnapp of Stranger Things) reconnecting with his estranged father (Ryan Phillipe) who is a street artist during the Great Depression era.

Perhaps, the most impressive aspect of this short is that it was shot entirely with a camera mounted on a DJI Inspire 2 drone.

Truly an outstanding production from talented people with state of the art equipment. Well done!
