A short-short film celebrating the art that keeps us sane even when life makes us crazy.
A collaborative effort between filmmakers, visual artists and composers. Still life is a labor of love for all of the collaborators involved – celebrating art coming to life. Sometimes art (whether it be painting, film or music) literally makes life!
Here’s a super short trailer for the super short film:
