The Stolen Wings is an Irish fantasy short film directed by Gerard Lough and starring Natasha O'Brien and Michael Parle. A babysitter makes up an elaborate fairy tale to keep a little girl amused. But there are hints the tale may not be completely made up. The film was released online on October 4 2009 and was show at several film festivals thereafter.
Production[edit | edit source]
The film was a mix of live action and animation, specifically the technique known as light painting combined with stop motion. Most of the filming took place Wexford, Ireland in locations such as Fethard castle. The real life daughters of actors Michael Parle and Natasha O'Brien appear in the film. To date it is the only family friendly film Gerard Lough has directed.

The film met with critical acclaim upon release and substantial press coverage such as RTE's Arena show, Film Ireland and Donegal News. The Independent Critic praised it as an "involving and compelling film that leaves you wanting more." Film Bizarro thought "It's very striking and an absolute feast for the eyes".
