Broken Wand

Things aren’t quite what they used to be for The Amazing Birdum. A washed up magician his audience has long ago departed. A visit from his game obsessed grandson, however, gives him the opportunity to use his broken wand again and to, perhaps, fix an ailing relationship. Yet can intergenerational magic happen? This is a very sweet (and beautifully made) animated short, directed by Anne Yang and Michael Altman at the School of Visual Arts.
