Fly on Out dives through vibrant the streets of Bed-Stuy Brooklyn as it follows 11 year old Dayvon as he is chased across the urban landscape after stealing a pigeon from two older boys. This highly stylized film is shot beautifully on the world famous Phantom High Speed Camera, creating a lush tapestry of real New York City characters and the gritty streets they tread upon. Most of the actors in Fly on Out are non-professionals who live in the Bed-Stuy Brooklyn neighborhood where filming took place.
