The Sweet Life is a sponsored project of Tribeca Flashpoint Academy

The Project
"The Sweet Life" is a final project and short film from a group of student filmmakers from Tribeca Flashpoint Media Arts Academy in Chicago, IL. As the capstone project prior to graduation, this film is a major step for all of us trying to break into the filmmaking industry.

The Story
In a comical spin on some rather serious issues, take a dive into Larry's world: one filled with addiction, betrayal, self-realization, and most importantly, candy.

What We Need
Our goal of $3500 will cover
-Feeding the cast and crew
-Filming equipment
-Wardrobe, Hair & Makeup
-Location & Parking fees
