Narrative “One A Day” Films

“Let’s just make a movie”

A Short Film Collection of mini-films.
Sometimes the kids (my students) are at a loss for inspiration. As I observe their behaviors on the first day, I try to create a short to compliment their thoughts and to keep their spirits immortalized for that one day in their life. This is what materialized. It may not make sense to you, but to the soul; it is everything.
