Summary

Action packed animated sequences and fiction scenes, many out of focus or over exposed, by Neville Gillings and his friends in 1985, called the 'Children's Film Unit' by his father, Michael Gillings.

Description

Toy soldiers are subsumed by a raging fire, and a pirate ship moves across the floor of the boy's bedroom. A boy lies on the ground, covered in ketchup, after being 'shot'. The family dog licks his face as his lies on the lawn. Having seemingly forgotten something, he retrieves his golf clubs and takes a swing, using binoculars to look for the golf ball.
