The Story

"Moth" is the moving story of Tommy, an unhappy seven year old boy who is still grieving for the death of his father whilst battling with his new stepfather. When a moth dies in the palm of his hand he is fascinated by the residue it leaves behind - "magic dust, that helps the moths to fly" his mother tells him. Tommy becomes obsessed with moths, seeing them as the only way to escape from the conflict around and within him.

Making The Film

"Moth" was shot over 5 days at Shepperton Studios and 1 day on location in Twickenham. The main challenge of the film was in creating the thousands of digital moths needed to tell the story. The following pages are a record of the preparation, shooting and post production of the film. The production diaries detail the experience from the perspective of the Director (Simon Corris), Producer (Alison Reddihough) and Runner (Mark Reddihough). The VFX page has examples of some of the numerous visual effects shots needed for the film and click here for all the production stills and behind the scenes photographs.
