A Little Girl Helps a Tiny Pilot 'SOAR'

If you combine the look of a Pixar film, the work of Japanese animator Hayao Miyasaki and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s classic novel “The Little Prince,” you may get the animated short “Soar.”

From the video description:

Soar was created as Alyce Tzue’s thesis project in school. What began as a toil of love by first-time filmmakers ended up catching the eyes of festivals all over the world. Soar is the proud 2015 Gold Winner of the 42nd Student Oscars, Best Student Animation Winner at Palm Springs, Finalist at the Student BAFTAs, and has screened in the Hamptons, St. Louis, Seoul, Austin, and more.

The Soar team is beyond grateful for your support. We believe the film’s surprise success is proof of its message: when you put in everything you’ve got, sometimes you achieve more than you ever expected.

Tzue hopes to turn “Soar” into a feature-length film.
