Small is Beautiful: A Tiny House Documentary – Two Years in the Making!

Several great documentaries on the Tiny House Movement have come out in recent years; but this one captures the story from the human side unlike I’ve ever seen. Filmmaker Jeremy Beasley captures the physical and emotional challenges faced by folks who take on their own tiny house endeavor while at the same time taking the shiny wrapping many tiny house stories come wrapped-in.

While the story unfolds the viewer is pushed & pulled emotionally, not sure where this story is headed. This not only makes the film riveting to watch, but encourages one to reflect on their own opinion and/or involvement with the Tiny House Movement – at least that was my experience. Without revealing any spoilers I can say I felt re-energized by this film and have begun to re-double my own involvement in the movement to think smaller.

Here’s what director Jeremy Beasley had to say about his film:

“I wasn’t aiming to glorify tiny house living. I explored what it is really like to build and live in a tiny house, sharing the subjects struggle and triumphs – and their real life journey through it.  I wanted the film to go deeper than trends or aesthetic. I wanted it to be courageous and vulnerable. To explore the real human aspect living tiny.”

This Summer’s Blockbuster: Tiny – The Movie

TINY: A Story About Living Small (Teaser Trailer) from TINY on Vimeo.

The movie, Tiny – A Story About Living Small, is getting some good press and it hasn’t even been released yet.

“The best cinema taps into our secret dreams, and TINY taps in specifically to our secret dreams about running away to Colorado and building a tiny house. Thus, we think it’s reasonable to assume it’ll be bigger than Avengers.”
