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.”

A Peek at April Anson’s Tiny House from the Upcoming Film, Small is Beautiful

In 2012, April’s long standing interest in creating “new” from old turned into a full-time adventure when she, with the help of over 30 of her friends and family, built her tiny “reclaimed” house for her to live in for the length of her PhD studies in Literature and the Environment.” – Small is Beautiful

Andrew Interviews Tiny House Filmmakers

With TINY still winning over audiences and being featured at film festivals around the world the cineplex is once again being invaded by tiny houses. Small is Beautiful will be a feature-length documentary film exploring the tiny house movement. The movement runs much deeper than architectural trends and design aesthetic. The stories being uncovered reveal an organic response to the societal constraints keeping people from fulfilling their life’s potential…” – Andrew
