Cameron is a 10-year-old boy, who creates a cardboard camera because of the economic hardships of his family. So, with the help of his two young friends, he creates an imaginative film and submits it into a school film competition. Cameron is constantly faced with several obstacles, including the neighborhood bully. These things challenge our hero's imagination and make it almost impossible to realize his dream.

The main theme of the story is about using imagination and creativity to overcome the hardships of reality. 

I believe this is a very important story to be told right now because of what the tough economic times that families are facing today. I hope it inspires audiences, especially kids and parents.

This is my thesis project to graduate at Art Center College of Design.
