The student produced short film, Flit has a relationship with flies and humans never seen before. When the fly befriends the human a new hope emerges for the world.

The story is about a guy, Carl who creates a machine to wipe out all flies on earth, his fly alarm reveals that one fly has somehow survived. Carl goes to chase it, but sees a town of all flies and can't bring himself to kill it. Instead they make a machine to turn flies into humans.

The story line is interesting and has no narrative, but you still get the whole story. The camerawork is clear and there are many cool angles of the fly and the machine. The location is predominantly inside a workshop with lots of cool devices and gadgets. The character Carl is originally bent on killing all flies, but ends up with a change of heart and doing something else. My favorite part is the flytopia town.

The message is that not all animals are bad and they can help the world in fabulous way. It's a reminder to think things through before you take extreme actions - like eliminating an entire species.

I give this short student produced film 4.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 8 to 12, plus adults. Reviewed by Avalon N., KIDS FIRST!

A world-renowned, professional fly killer, named Carl, is on the cusp of finalizing his latest and most powerful invention; a machine that, with a single pulse, will annihilate every single fly on this world. Whilst testing its efficacy within the limited range of his workshop, a single fly miraculously survives the death pulse. Adamant that his machine not be undermined, a chase ensues between the fly and its would-be killer. Before Carl has a chance to squash it, the fly crawls into a small hole in the wall, out of reach. Putting his eye up to the hole, Carl sees before him an impossible fly utopia; bathed in golden light and hope. Jolting backwards, his sense of the world now fractured, the fly re-emerges and lands on the blueprints of Carl's death-machine. As he looks on, the fly redesigns his machine, transforming it into something far more intriguing; a machine that turns flies into humans. From United Kingdom
