Flight has captivated the human imagination for centuries. As the first place many people discover this passion, The Academy of Model Aeronautics wished to share their story of inspiration. We decided to show model aviation as a springboard into a life filled with discovery and new beginnings by focusing on the trajectory of a child enthralled by flight.
Real Members, Real Moments
To accurately depict moments of discovery, perseverance, and love of flight, it was important to us to feature real AMA members throughout the piece. We shot in a documentary style to capture real moments. The crash featured was heart-breaking momentarily, but watching that boy bounce back was incredible. (We were even able to supply our footage to to get a replacement for him!). We shot all over the country with lots of great clubs and met some incredible people on the journey.
Little Details, Big Ideas
We juxtaposed the tiny details of model aircraft with giant views from space to highlight the connection between the small moments of discovery and the incredible innovation that comes from them. At one point in the story, we literally see the world inside of a child’s eye.
