It Can be Anything

We’re so incredibly proud to release our short film to the world. This has been a year in the making!

Rachel has an intellectual disability and has been an artist for over 8 years. She loves to draw and create. The images, shapes, and feelings you embody when looking at her work is truly special. While she has a hard time communicating verbally, her art has a way of connecting with people and communicating on a whole other level.

The film is an inter-dimensional journey of creativity through the lens of Rachel’s drawings. Her work represents a unique and vast creative landscape to explore. More importantly, her philosophical outlook establishes an open-mindedness and inclusivity that is both beautiful and inspiring. Our intention was to leverage that outlook and use her phrase "It Can Be Anything" as a mantra to steer us through her journey.
