2017 - 2019

A 3 minute short film about a 10 year old girl named Harper who 'flaps'. Flapping is a self-stimulatory (stimming) behavior used by individuals who need extra sensory input. Harper twitches and moves her hands so that her imagination can come to life. In this story, Harper learns for the first time that diverging behavior is not accepted by society.
