Bradford Walton is the Writer, Producer, and Director of this extraordinary short feature. It is a beautiful, touching and artistic film about Piper, an 11yr-old girl who struggles with the 5 stages of loss & grief but finds hope in the infinite possibilities of the cosmos. The story follows Piper’s journey and her experience of being bullied at school and her disconnect with her father, who isn’t coping with the loss of his beloved wife and mother of Piper.
The film culminates with Piper conquering her bullies and finding first like / first love through her connectedness with the cosmos.
Completion of this project is vital to the creative community of Cleveland & wider Redland Bay area for the following reasons:
• The film’s screening at International Film Festivals will showcase and acknowledge local cast, crew, services and donors and sponsors on a global scale.
• Breath-taking imagery (4K Arri Camera & 6K drone footage) will showcase beautiful Moreton Bay, Stradbroke Island & other mainland sites of Redland Bay to international distributors, producers & tourism promoters as a location/destination for future productions.
• The Musical Score was created by a local Composer/Conductor and recorded live by the Redland Sinfonia using 5:1 Dolby surround sound. A first for the community.
• Completion of post-production will continue to generate work for local suppliers/businesses, contributing to the creative industry sector and providing an economic boost to the community.
All donations received will contribute to post-production costs to ensure 5MP is completed for submission to international film festivals, commencing with Cannes Film Festival in February 2020.
