I participated in the TIFF Talent Lab. We were given a Motorola cell phone and told to make a self-portrait.
I made this movie using a pen, a drawing book and imovie. The film's budget was comparable to the cost of an egg salad sandwich. I know that because that's what I ate the day I made this, and that was the only expense.
