Tell Your Children is a short film project that fuses original poetry and independent film to make a series of 4 fantastical micro-shorts (4-minute films). With 3 live action films and 1 animated film, we’re focusing on characters from myth, legend, and faery tale.
We’re here to explore intimate, magical stories found in poetry and bring them to life on film.
Emilie was awarded a grant for this film project from the Tacoma Arts Commission and 4Culture, as part of the 2015 Tacoma Artists Initiative Program award. To raise the rest of the money for film production, Emilie and her team ran a successful kickstarter campaign in September 2015. The project was filmed on-location in Tacoma, WA in November 2015, and will be released in 2016.
