Taking Flight - Director -Brandon Oldenberg was out sick unfortunately, but Wendell Riley, the Associate Producer, took over to chat with me about the film.

CAST: Asher Blinkoff, Kevin Rahm, Ray Wise

Taking Flight is a short film inspired by the life and heritage of Antonio Pasin, inventor of the Radio Flyer wagon. In this fictional tribute to Pasin’s legacy, what begins as a small boy’s over-scheduled, over supervised, boring day with Grandpa turns into a larger-than-life journey, narrowly escaping wild monkeys and battling aliens to save the universe. Through the power of imagination and epic adventure, a boy learns to be a kid, a father learns to be a dad, and a grandpa reminds all of us what childhood is all about.
