From November 2012 till January 2013, we worked as Moth Collective on a beautiful feature documentary about Laura Dekker, a dutch solo sailor who was the youngest to sail around the world alone. The film, directed by American director Jillian Schlessinger, is a personal journey through the oceans of the world, and has been filmed both by Jillian and Laura, while on route. All filming at sea was made my Laura herself. Although her trip was a huge controversy in Holland and Laura was held from travelling for a whole year, due to her young age, she managed to set off at the age of 14 and complete her journey two years later, in 2012.
Our role in the film was to create 24 animated maps, showing Laura's geographical and emotional journey through the seas. The film will premiere in SWSX festival in Austin, Texas, next week and we are very excited to be there to see it in its full glory and finally meet the whole Maidentrip team!
These are some beautiful posters that artist Leah Koransky made for the film. The trailer and our animations will follow shortly.
