The Flying Lesson – A Short Movie

Here’s a great short movie recently released. The Flying Lesson is an ambitious action/drama short film involving air-to-air stunt sequences with a vintage WWII Tiger Moth bi-plane, which in our view makes it worth viewing even without the gentle storyline.

After the recent death of her grandfather, Phoebe Sanderson (Jessica Blake) takes a flying lesson in the exact plane her grandfather flew in WWII, a recently restored Tiger Moth. With a sense of trepidation, she takes flight with a promise to keep. Only a chauvinistic flying instructor (Richard J. Fletcher) with a secret stands in her way.

A cool movie, shot by young director James Oldham with a very small budget and a crew of just twenty people, you can read the full story behind the making of The Flying Lesson on the Hurlbut Visuals blog here Follow James on Twitter here or read more on the Facebook page here

If you love the sound of the Cosworth V8 as much as the V12 Merlin, the smell of Jet A1 as much as Castrol R and admire the late Ray Hanna as much as Sir Stirling, you’ll find you’re both on the same page. Neill's love of art deco buildings means that his ideal home would be a brilliant white, 1930′s control tower in Southern France, with crisply mown grass, biplane parked on the driveway and a Ferrari 288GTO in the garage. This is something that those around him tolerate, though it does concern them from time to time.
