In an effort to promote its DSLR cameras as filmmaking tools, Canon launched a promotion called Project Imagination with the help of director Ron Howard. As part of the challenge, several high-profile celebrities stepped behind the camera to make short films of their own, with fashion designer Georgina Chapman directing A Dream of Flying. Written by none other than Neil Gaiman, it's the story of a young girl with the ability to fly — a skill that she's admonished for exploring rather than simple accepting her station as an ordinary human being. Gaiman's unique voice and view of the world are unmistakeable, but don't take our word for it; watch the short film for yourself below.
