When a little nightingale wonders to herself why the sun must go down at night, she embarks upon a journey where she meets creatures who can make flowers from sky, weave wind into clouds and turn rain into song...
One little nightingale embarks on a journey, to find out why there must be darkness in our world...
When a little nightingale wonders to herself why the sun must go down at night, she decides to embark upon a journey. She first meets the Sunkeeper, and asks him why he sets the sun at night. The Sunkeeper explains that it is so the Starmaker knows when it's time to put stars in the sky. The Nightingale's journey then leads her to the Starmaker, the Flowermaker, and other celestial creatures of our world... At last she discovers that the sun must go down so that it can rise again in the morning, and that, just like everything else in life, there must be dark so there can be light.
Our team is small, but strong! Tash Gabaglia is a talented Victoria vocalist, Dylan Davies is a pro audio engineer, and Iris Moore is an award-winning animator. With our talents combined, the three of us will make a film worth remembering...
A curious and contemplative creature, the Nightingale is the protagonist in our journey. She is unafraid to ask questions, but will always do so with kindness and an open mind. She is willing to go great lengths to understand how the world around her works.
Powerful yet gentle, the Sunkeeper keeps a watchful eye on the world below, raising and lowering the sun and the moon each day and night.
Sweet and humble, the Starmaker is happy to cut stars out of the sky each night, and generously gives the pieces of sky to the her friend, the Flowermaker.
Kind-hearted and shy, the Flowermaker busies himself with his tasks of making flowers out of bits of sky and harbours a hidden love for the Windmaker.
Old and wise, the Cloudmaker has been making clouds since the beginning of the world, and wears bandages to cover the scars of a thousand lifetimes.
She asked the silver Starmaker, who's skin shone like the moon, "Oh why do you make stars that shine like tiny silver blooms?"
