An image of a girl on a hoverboard, teetering on a window of a luxury high-rise building deciding whether to breakaway in a semi-submerged London of 2053 and the concept of a Memory Investigator provided Framestore’s VFX supervisor and creative director, Tim Webber, with the chance to create and direct a short film utilising FUSE (Framestore Unreal Shot Engine).

FLITE was shot over five days and assembled into a 14-minute sci-fi drama. It revolves around a stranger trying to assist a young female champion hoverboarder attempting to leave her oppressive manager by recounting what he saw to local law enforcement.
