A caged bird longs to be free . . . until he’s given the chance to escape.

"Pluck Up" is a short 3D animation, written by Michelle Claase. The film is an independent production, co-produced by Michelle Claase and Manish Singh. The project was initiated in 2015 and is currently in the early stages of production. 



A young girl tries to release a caged bird who’s been dreaming of freedom. Stifled with fear of the neighbourhood cat, the bird hesitates and misses his chance to escape.

Behind the bars of safety, regrets turns to relief when the bird is taunted by the cat. But just as he starts to feel untouchable, he's given another, far more risky, opportunity. But can he pluck up the courage to rise above his fears?
