About The Project

Amos Cave Adventure

This short film is a door into Amos’ imagination where he shares with you the high octane, zany and colourful environment that his stories take place in. It is driven by Amos’ love for dancing and his whimsical knack for creating scenes and characters very quickly, drawing from his life experiences, the people around him and the media he watches. Embracing this as Amos’ invitation and way to connect, we danced, drew and are led by his bold creative choices and performances. Amos’ Cave Adventure documents one of many stories that bloom in the expanse of his imagination and we would like to share this with you.
