The short film Metanoia tells the story about a girl without arms and legs, that deals with her situation through the dream of playing basketball. She magically grows back her extremities, however it is up to the viewer to decide, what happens in her head and what is reality. The vfx driven film project was created with a group of six Digital Effects students for a Masters Degree assignment at Bournemouth University in the space of 7 weeks. It was a group effort and all aspects from pre- till post production was completed by the group.
