Fancy mutilation is on the menu
Harnam told CBS a bit of back story on the project: “I initially wrote ‘Life is an Art’ as a 10-minute short film. Through social networking I met a producer – Rik Sinkeldam. I gave Rik the script and he responded favorably. Through him, I got in touch with Paul de Vrijer, a professional screenplay writer. Paul and I completely re-wrote ‘Life is an Art’ and the film evolved into a longer narrative.
Rik read the second version of the film and was thrilled with the story. We decided to make a 2-minute teaser trailer of the script and upload it to YouTube. Through social networking, we asked our friends to participate in the film with sponsor money. They could buy credits. We received so much attention from that trailer that it was proposed we expand it into a full-length feature film. We reworked it, coming up with a whole different angle.”
