While there’s a lot of political ranting about LGBT families, every so often its worth taking a step back from the theory of why gay people should be allowed to have kids and see the reality – which 99 times out of 100 involves great kids and great families.
That’s certainly true in the musical short Papa’s Prince.
Co-creator Ted Sod says, ‘Some time ago, I asked Blake McCarty if he wanted to collaborate on a short film inspired by my “granddaughter” Viv. Viv was adopted at infancy by our friends Michael and Calvin, and because there were no grandparents in her life, she – in turn – adopted me and my partner as “The Gramps”.
‘The result is a seven-minute musical short mixing live action and stop motion animation. The story focuses on a 7-year-old girl (coincidentally named Viv) who invents a fairy tale about how her Dads met as a way to entertain her new friend, Henry.’
