IN DEVELOPMENT ...  

PLAYER PIANO is a “headphones-recommended” film experience. Viewed through Jace’s eyes, this quick-moving short film uses beautifully recorded sound to tell the story of a man who, after a car accident, hears music when he touches things.  Based on a rare neurological disorder call Acquired Savant Syndrome, this 3-minute short is a simple, yet exhilarating audio-visual journey.
