Do it yourself doesn't mean do it alone.
Ten independent artists turn friendships and virtual connections into real-world collaborations. They explore the benefits and challenges of creating independently, how to find like-minded others and what’s possible when makers join forces to create together.
It started as a private correspondence between two makers. What emerged was a powerful practice for the not-lost art of friendship.
On the verge of major milestones two storytellers--author/illustrator Tim Manley and filmmaker Jen Lee--began a modern correspondence that catches the quiet moments, their time in the spotlight and the parts of the journey that fall somewhere in between. It's a project that bears witness and ultimately changes them as they push their personal and artistic boundaries--finding strength and solace in the company of each other.
