Time & Tide

We are all really busy and with full, busy days, crammed with work, in our mid-30's it's easy to feel that life is passing you by. In this short film we have tried to capture those little, beautiful snapshots that make up a life. This is the good stuff, the tiny moments of pure contentment. Moments you can hold on to that actually help to define your character and that of your loved ones.

This poem written by Dave from fuzzy duck about the magic of life, spoken and acted by the ducks, our friends and family.

In the immortal words of Ferris Beuller: Life moves pretty fast if you don't stop to look around once in a while you could miss it.
