DISCOVER NEW PROJECTS

A while back I published a post called: Have You Watched A Short Film Today?

In it you’ll find links to tons of websites that promote indie filmmakers and their work.  There are countless shorts out there waiting to be discovered.  Here are a couple I enjoyed this morning using the links in that post.

12 DRAWINGS: AN ANIMATED DIARY

Creator Denis Chapon drew 12 images every day for 3 years!  That’s an amazing amount of dedication that resulted in a fantastic short.

It’s a little late for Christmas but this is a wonderfully creepy and extremely stylish thriller that’s less than two minutes.  Directed by Andreas Pasvantis.

NEW INDIE FEATURE FILM: PROMISE LAND

From director Kevin Dalvi comes a social film that tackles immigration issues in our world today.  Here is the synopsis:

“The film is a funny, touching and heart-warming drama with a powerful social message that relates to current events. With immigration as a central theme, the three stories in the film effortlessly intertwine in this gripping tale of love, conflict, and hope. These compelling narratives shed light on some unique immigration challenges and triumphs of the characters as they struggle to keep their families together and pursue their dreams in a place they have come to call home.”
