Director Statement

My brother Raphael dreams about a robot a’lot, at times he thinks he is a robot himself!! I imagined him walking across barnes bridge, having a conversation with the electric car meter and thinking about being kind to another person, who looks likes they need it. Giving him a balloon, red being bright and positive. Using all our recycling in a resourceful way, cardboard boxes, butter lids, and lots of home painting to make the brightest and magical robot costume, who will be the main character. The music should be mysterious like Harry Potter, but as a Robot, creating space noise.

Bringing attention to the robot reacting to different types of communications, like an old fashioned red letter box or a futuristic electric car charging point, is important.

I believe that being kind will save the Earth.

Saffron.
