A Cautionary Tail

 " A crowd-funded short film about a girl born with a tail could be the latest success story from an Australian animated short, 
as its premiere at the Flickerfest short film festival highlighted. "
A Cautionary Tail for Australian film success
A Cautionary Tail 
"A Cautionary Tail is an animated short film starring 
Cate Blanchett, David Wenham and Barry Otto. 
Directed by Simon Rippingale, the film is based on a children's story by writer Erica Harrison.
Through a collage of 3D animated characters and hand-made miniature sets, we follow the story of a girl born with a tail that expresses her emotions. 
A dark, funny fable about learning to treasure the things that make us unique, the film is animated by world-class CGI artists and features an original score by Michael Yezerski, composer for the Academy Award-winning short, The Lost Thing."
It's good to see these films getting crowd funding and the dream coming alive for everyone involved in the process.
