The film was directed by Fred & Nick, who commented:

When Brave Bird Saved is an introduction to a visual journey directly inspired, informed, and narrated by the first four tracks of 'Once I Was An Eagle'. Having collaborated with Laura over the last four years, the ambition and scope of this film marks an exciting new direction for us - and we were given total freedom to focus strongly on the distinct journey of the four tracks.
