'Take Wing' is a short film conceptualised, performed and shot by Miller with music composed by Scott. Set on Hogchester Farm, a 75-acre conservation site and re-wilding project, and in Hogchester Arts empty gallery barn, Miller embodies different shadow archetypes to delve into the boundary between the conscious/ subconscious. She explores themes around ascension, metamorphosis and rebirth through predator - prey, fertility - death, horizontal - vertical dichotomies.
