Synopsis: This is the whimsical, magical story of Reginald, a fella who always yearned to take flight, despite the fact he is, well, a llama. Will Reginald ever take to the sky, or will he forever be bound to a life on land? The short animated musical explores what happens when you take a leap of faith.
Reginald was truly a passion project for me. Within the last year, I have realized how important it is for me, as a woman filmmaker, to stay to my own voice. When I created Reginald, I set out to make something I felt like was 100% my personality and my voice, and, low and behold, a flying llama was just that. I hope you all enjoy seeing this film as much as I enjoyed making it.
