Part One! Created by youth in Wide Angle's Design Team, this short animation features attendance superhero Never Late Nate, preparing for another successful day at school when his cat Fluffy alerts him that there is a student on the verge of being late. Nate flies over to help but learns that the student in need is not the only person waiting for him...
These short films were created through a special Youth Speaks Out program in the summer of 2015, providing youth ages 10-15 with free media education in their own community.
