Birdsong is a quirky coming-of-age short film set in a stylized 90’s New Zealand. It follows a young boy’s changing perception of his eccentric father. He steals dogs, he runs obsessive tests on injured animals, and wears a finch-like bird mask. A tragic turn raises the stakes, the relationship now hinging on the validity of the father’s experiments.

Birdsong was awarded First Place in The Best Foreign Film Category at Indie Fest USA International Film Festival, 2013 and was also selected for the Sandfly International Film Festival in Australia.

Shiloh Dobie collaborated with Julia Fenn and Jack Taylor to design and build the Father’s bird mask (depicted).
