About Sproot Movies

Sproot Movies are created by Loring Robbins, a character animator in the San Francisco area with over 10 years experience in animation for video and multimedia production. This is his first independent film project.

The Story

Sproot is a young girl from a family of telekinetic beings who hasn’t completely figured out how to use the telekinetic cone on the top of her head. Her attempts to use this power land her in comic situations with her family and accidentally propel her on an adventure far away from her mountain top home. Ultimately she must learn to master her special ability in order to return home, and in the process, discovers something about her people’s unique talent that will change their lives forever.
