The award wining music short “Portraiture”.

A short film “hugely inspired by SAND”:

Music & Lyrics: Sherenproject
Sound, arrangements: Danila Danilov (Redwave Studio), Sherenproject, Mike Kalajan (Rogue Planet), Dmitry Chichagov (Parksound)

This short film is exploring the difference between our persona and the true essence beyond our roles, gender, age, racial identity.

This film is an actual record of how people become different when they get naked in front of the camera; none of them is a professional actor, and all of them were acting spontaneously.
