’KS1 Literacy’ provides the opportunity to view the short, live-action film ‘Dangle’, and to find out from writer/director, Phil Traill, what went into making the film.

Phil Traill talks about where the idea for the film came from and how the script evolved. He also describes the process of creating a storyboard and the decisions behind the use of different camera shots.

In ‘Dangle’, sound plays a very important role although there's no dialogue and no music. There are also some very clever special effects.
