In this collection of shorts we observe our characters weigh the balance of how immediate gratification can compromise long-term goals.

The characters in this collection of shorts learn to keep the bigger picture in their sight. In one short, talented dancer Tina hesitates to put herself out there, she wishes for a twin. Just be careful what you wish for! In another short, new boy in town Jirka wishes he was invisible. Until he doesn't. In the final short, Deenpal wants to be a great soccer goalie. Along with physical training, he has to get mentally prepared, too.

CORNSTALK (Short Film)

Synopsis: Once upon a time there was a princess with a penchant for trying new things. Being a tad taller than her suitors presented a challenge to her royal parents. But not to her, as she finds her ever-after true calling on her own - including her own perfect prince.
