Project of the Day: A Woman's Daily Adventure with Gnome Al

Tweetable Logline:

Every afternoon, Linda tries to reconnect with Gnome Al. Every night, Gnome Al forgets Linda exists. A love story.

Elevator Pitch:

GNOMES is a short film about the lengths a woman named Linda goes to in order to stay connected to a guy named Gnome Al. It’s about making gnome hats. And showing up. It’s about the benefits of simple repetition. And for me, it’s about magic.

Production Team:

Writer/Director: Abram Makowka
Producer: Setu Raval
Co-Producer: Rebecca Green

About the Production:

“When I was little, my mom taught me how to make gnome hats. She was Santa Claus. She was the tooth fairy. She was everything my imagination needed her to be. Our connection was so strong when I was a kid. But as I get older, this connection’s getting harder to maintain. And I don’t know why. Why is it that the closest, most important connections are sometimes the hardest to hold onto? I think, when you make a real connection, you should do everything you can to hold onto it. No matter what.” – Abram Makowa
