Set in a dark universe dependent on light, METEORLIGHT is a story about a child accompanying their parent on a regular day at work; the factory which creates light for the city’s inhabitants.

But when exploring the facility, they discover the secret of what is actually creating the lights which power the entire city, and it threatens to bring down their world…

It's going to be... illuminating!

METEORLIGHT is a film written and animated (and all the other visual bits in-between) by Jonny Eveson.

It features an original soundtrack by Blair Mowat (Doctor Who, Class), sound design by Helen Dickson, an audio mix by Eli Rainsberry, and end credit music by Aislin Evans.
It also has a complete translatable written language created by Lindsey Williams especially for this film.
