A Short Film

Love and the Universe

Love and the universe: an optimistic story about connectedness in a time of desolation.

It is a simple story, and a journey of getting a message out to the world. That message is empathy.

As commercial artists we have been firsthand witnesses to the powerful public reach displayed by large entertainment studios and other commercial enterprises with which a message can travel within a well crafted digital medium. The goal with Love and the Universe is not to copy formulas of commercial studios but to strive for equally raised production quality and create a positive far reaching message.
