short fix: The Maker
This week’s short fix invites you to meet The Maker, a strange creature who races against time to make the most important and beautiful creation of his life. Inspired by the Australian classical composer Paul Halley, this poignant fantasy uses Halley’s beautifully infectious composition Winter as the soundtrack for the entire short film.
Says writer/director Christopher Kezelos: “The Maker explores the preciousness of our moments on earth, the short time we have with loved ones and the enjoyment of ones life’s work and purpose. In their fleeting existence our characters experience joy, love, hard work, purpose, loss and loneliness. As the tagline suggests, ‘life is what you make it’ and we are all makers in this world.”
The Maker has currently screened at over 60 festivals and won 11 awards, including top honours at the Rhode Island International Film Festival, CFC Worldwide Short Film Festival, Sydney Film Festival and SICAF 2012. Learn more at www.themakerfilm.com.
