Synopsis

This short film will be created as a live action/animated retelling of the ancient Haida creation myth “Raven Steals the Light” which is about how light came to mankind. Our retelling will begin with a live action sequence as a grandmother shares the story with her grandchildren, transitioning into an animated world where everything is backlit with blacklight. The Raven sneaks into the Sky Father’s house and steals the light. As he flies away , he drops pieces that become the moon, stars and finally the sun. The story then returns to live action where the grandmother finishes the tale.
