About this film

As a ten year old girl, I wanted to tell a story about something that was fairly personal to me and so I decided it would be about this time in my life when I’m just starting to grow up – and about friendship!
“Moving On” was in part inspired by the song “Puff the Magic Dragon” (I love that song!) – because I thought about how when Jackie Paper didn’t think about Puff any more, he just kind of disappeared.

    If this is what you can do at 10 I can't wait to see your work in the future. Good observational skills on life Holly; it's clear you see unkind things that are presented to us - which is what good drama is all about. It needs conflict, struggles and obstacles.
    Well done, great little film and cracking actors too :)

    Enjoyed watching this story very well told in pictures, with not too much dialogue, which is a great skill to have when making films. It's great that you got your inspiration from a song, rather than copying what you've seen in other films. Finding inspiration in other artforms, and the real world is important to tell interesting stories with original points of view.

    A rather bittersweet ending - I felt really sad for the imaginary friend!

    Well done, ask lots of questions, and keep making movies :)

    Well done. Keep at it. Where there's grey areas try to get good advice and just keep practicing and getting better.

    If this is what you're capable of writing and directing at 10, I can't wait to see what you produce as you grow older! Great stuff Holly.
