Adult Life Lab, Writer, Director, Producer
2022 - In production
In the film, a group of co-workers becomes friends as they start to invent devices to help themselves cope with the challenges of adulthood. This film’s plot is about adulting, but the bigger story is how a group of over 70 people in Turku, Finland and Rome, Georgia made a film together.
Current work, Adult Life Lab, is both a short film and a community-based DIY filmmaking project. The short film (shot in May 2022) involved many first-time cast and crew members and local organizations (Hacklab Turku, Ekotori, Ullrike Artisan Felt and Yarn) who partnered with film professionals to make the story come alive.
