Trailer Debut and New Website: Life Is an Art

Jayant R. Harnam's horror film Life Is an Art had a great run at Cannes, and now a trailer and an official website are online. Ready for a little indie goodness? You know you are!

The flick tells the tale of "Dane DeSantos and David Bell, two detectives, who are investigating a series of mutilations by 'The Artist'. With the help of beautiful private investigator Claire Jones, they unravel the truth about these art related victims."

CBS recently did a report on the film. Check out an excerpt below.

"I initially wrote 'Life Is an Art' as a 10-minute short film," says director Harnam. "Through social networking I met a producer - Rik Sinkeldam. I gave Rik the script and he responded favorably. Through him I got in touch with Paul de Vrijer, a professional screenplay writer. Paul and I completely re-wrote 'Life Is an Art,' and the film evolved into a longer narrative."

"Rik read the second version of the film and was thrilled with the story. We decided to make a two-minute teaser trailer of the script and upload it to YouTube. Through more social networking we asked our friends to participate in the film with sponsor money. They could buy credits. We received so much attention from that trailer that it was proposed we expand it into a full-length feature film. We reworked it, coming up with a whole different angle."

Big thanks to DC reader Bells McCandles for the heads up. Dig on the clips as well as the trailer below.
