This isn’t the first documentary on Tiny Houses, but it’s definitely unique. Here’s what Jeremy Beasley, the director, has to say:
“I wasn’t aiming to glorify tiny house living. I explored what it is really like to build and live in a tiny house, sharing the subjects struggle and triumphs – and their real life journey through it. I wanted the film to go deeper than trends or aesthetic. I wanted it to be courageous and vulnerable. To explore the real human aspect living tiny.”
What inspired you to make the movie?
“The idea of having a 30 year mortgage is not something I’m comfortable with, so I started researching alternative ways to live. How could I live with less material possessions, in a smaller space and I thought what better way to learn about it than to interview the people in the process or already doing it. I started making a few short films of people living in shipping container houses and on boat houses and eventually ended up in Portland, Oregon where the Tiny House community is incredibly strong and offered a really deep, beautiful and inspiring look into tiny houses.”
The documentary is coming out April 30, 2015 and I don’t know about you but I’m excited to watch this one because there’s a lot I haven’t seen inside. Better yet, you’re getting a sneak peek at the film right here right now (below).
This film showcases a collection of stories of people who are chasing their own personal freedoms by designing, building, and moving into their own tiny house. Stories and people that you probably haven’t heard of yet.
I encourage you to enjoy this preview of the Small is Beautiful tiny house documentary below and that it inspires you now and reminds you to watch the rest of the film when it’s released on April 30th. I can’t wait! Thanks!
