TINY: A Story About Living Small is a (short) documentary about one man’s attempt at building a tiny house from scratch in the mountains of Colorado, with no prior building experience.
The film also follow the lives of other families around America who have downsized their lives into less than 400 square feet, and asks the question, “What really makes a house feel like a home?”
According to Christopher and Merete, the filmmakers behind the project, the actual shooting of the film is almost complete. Right now they are raising money for post-production of the film (things like recording the original score, editing, and sending the film to a finishing house) on Kickstarter.com.
