Written, directed, and illustrated by BAFTA nominated creative director Allison Brownmoore, “The Amazing Adventures of Awesome” is about a young autistic girl at the heart of a quiet revolution, and was written as a tribute to her ten-year-old son, Oscar

“A couple of years ago, a life changing moment with my autistic son inspired me to create a beautifully crafted short film, which challenges common misconceptions of autism. Quite different to typical representations of autism in the media, the film is a beautiful, optimistic piece using hand drawn animation - Allison Brownmoore

Watch The Amazing Adventures of Awesome:

The film was created from hand drawn illustrations, scanned, coloured, composited and animated primarily using After Effects and the plugin Duik.
