What if you let a toddler dictate the narrative of a travel video? That’s exactly what the folks at Gnarly Bay Productions set out to explore with their gorgeous short film SAND IN THE SKY.


The video is presented as an interview with 18 month old Ollie, asking him about a trip to Hawaii he went on exactly 1 year earlier. Muddling through the baby talk to produce a (semi) cohesive subtitled script, Ollie’s memories are like fragment from a dream based on sights and sounds.


The stunning visuals that accompany Ollie’s narration were achieved by filming through shards of glass that act like prisms, bouncing light in interesting ways to add to the dream-like quality of the whole video.


The beautifully made video raises questions about what it is that children get out of travelling, and points to the idea that any kind of horizon-widening experience has some sort of an effect, even when the person involved is barely old enough to understand what is happening to them.
