The Fawn is a collaborative, intergenerational storytelling project for the 21st century. This social media born, expanded cinema work unites art and life through the reinvention and the magical realism of a childs imagination, who is constantly stuck at her parents work, and she moves to another level with Snapchat. The Fawn is a no budget work that utilizes free mobile applications to explore character and contemporary issues in ecology through the whimsical perspective of childhood.
The Fawn gets separated from her parents while searching for clean water. She encounters deforestation that drives her further into the forest where she meets all manor of creatures before discovering the heart of the forest where there is clean water. The film uses common technology and free mobile applications to weave a fantastical heros journey as she traverses modern ecological crises.

Odd is terrified of his head, until one day he falls in love with Gunn who is both fearless and happy in life. Odd's life is turned upside down and he is freed from his worries in the most unexpected way.
Such a great parable for adults as well about acceptance and kindness.
