Art Animates Life's
AAL's filmmaking offshoot, Art Animates Life Films, is a multiple award-winning independent studio. Works created by current and past members include Hooked (San Diego Children's Film Festival), Boy on the Moon (iVIE first place, Fallbrook Film Festival featured selection), Sins of the Father (iVIE first place, VCTV Film of the Year), Mystery High (iVIE, VCTV Storyteller of the Year, Fallbrook Film Festival featured selection), and the stage-to-movie production Auditioning Truths and Lies. It's newest production, Sky Takes a Bite Out of Crime, will begin filming March 2017 as part of AAL's Young Filmmaker Series.
Art Animates Life benefits the greater community in a number of important ways:
►We offer financial support for essential Southern California charities. Every one of our productions has generated revenue for our beneficiary while also increasing their public profiles.
► We provide excellent live theater at greatly reduced ticket prices─thanks in large measure to generous grants, private donations, and corporate sponsorship from Chick-fil-A, McDonalds, Chipotle, Noodles & Company, and others.
►Art Animates Life serves as a creative crucible, putting 'newbies' side-by-side with accomplished professionals in real world performance environments. Art Animates Life never charges a 'pay-to-play' fee of any kind, greatly benefiting younger and senior actors who wish to explore their craft but are often of limited means.
► We produce shows and events that are not only entertaining, but educative and historically significant.
►Art Animates Life owns its own lights, sets, props, costumes, sound, cameras, video projection, and more. As a result we are able to stage productions at venues not otherwise purposed to do so─for example, a municipal gallery, an arts center in an industrial warehouse, a 100-year-old restored theater, etc.).
► In addition to theatrical productions, Art Animates Life also produces other SoCal events including local pageants, student performances, and provide mentoring at no cost whatsoever
►Art Animates Life is also a complete movie production studio (Art Animates Life Films). We own our own cameras, lenses, lighting, and editing suite. Films have offered valuable insights into the world of handicapped artists, the angst of teenage alienation, the struggles within dysfunctional families, introductions to new community organizations, and more. Works created through Art Animates Life Films' Young Filmmaker Series have been named featured selections at So Cal film festivals, taken top honors at the Children's International Film Festival, and twice placed first at the San Diego iVIE awards.
