The Synopsis/ Pitch

Dreams are windows in which we can see and discover our passions and talents.

Jayden is a CG Animation film about a young girl that escapes into a fantasia, in which unearths her talent of art and passion for creativity.

Footsteps can be heard approaching, getting louder and louder. 
Jayden is running with a kite though the streets of a small warm Spanish-Influenced village. She is weaving and bobbing around alleys while her fish kite is wildly swimming though the air shortly above her. Then unexpectingly, her foot catches and skids off of a stick of chalk that was laying on the ground. Jayden tumbles to the ground letting go of her kite, which is then picked up by the wind and carried off. 

Jayden is upset and peeved that she lost her kite until she notices the chalk stick at her feet. She picks it up and examines it. Then an ideas sparks across her mind. She gets up and begins to draw across the wall. She draws a fish, just like the kite she lost. She steps back to admire her work, then glances away from it for a second and then back only to be shocked that her drawing is no longer there on that spot of the wall. She freaks out but then suddenly notices that her drawing is still there but on a different spot on the wall. Puzzled, she walks down towards it, but as she reaches it the drawing springs to life and begins swimming down the alley wall.
She runs after it.

As she runs, the world around her and the drawing begin to vanish. The once tan warm wall in the back has become dark purple, and the ground and wall planes have become one. It looks as if jayden is running in nothingness. the fish quickly swims off frame and then Jayden notices the change in scenery. Because of the lack of a floor plane, she begins to fall. But she is then caught by something. she looks down at her savior to see that it is a giant flying fish.

The fish flys out from behind a cloud to revel an abstract city of shapes and colors in a nightime sky. Jayden is dazzled by the sight of it all. In the distance, there is more giant fish, each carrying a glowing orbs, they all look like shooting stars. The giant fish that Jayden is riding upon continues skimming across the clouds. 
Jayden and the fish begin to come closer to a large cloud formation, but then all of the sudden a bigger angler-like fish springs from the cloud mass. His razor mouth gapes towards them and Jayden slams her eyes shuts and screams. The camera zooms close unto her shut eyes. The scream fades away. The background fades away. All is quiet and still. Then there is a loud snapping sound. Jayden's eyes pop open. 

Jayden is in the village again. Her arm is outstretched to the wall. she pulls it away and open her hand to reveal a broken small piece of chalk. she looks back to the wall, the whole wall is covered in chalk. Drawings of her adventure. The fish, the orbs, the clouds, the city- it's all there. She looks down again sadly at the remains of her new toy. but then relies. It wasn't the chalk that was so fun, it was her imagination and her new found talent to draw. Jayden similes, And then runs off.  
The footsteps fade away.
