No, It’s Not My Eyes

We came across this short film recently through a friend. It’s perfect! Simple set, simple story, moving performance.

Not to oversell it or anything, but go ahead and see if you can keep your eyes dry.

Many of our fans and friends tell us that they think this story is about them. The one take-away they all report in common is, “keep creating, keep performing, keep sharing your art, because someday that magic moment will come together and you want to be there!”


Maybe that magic moment for you is to have your next short movie shown in front of a full-house audience. It’s why they have the San Francisco 48 Hour Film Project.

Learn more about it and sign up now if you have your own story to tell. You’ll never forget it, we promise!
