At the The Act of Storytelling, we believe in the ability for art to create change and impact the world around us. We are interested in collaboration and producing our own stories, from podcasts to films , to reflect this philosophy.

Before I Go (in production)

Before I Go; a short film about love and fear and family, and what happens if we don't support each other. Or if we do...

Retired dairy farmer, Frank Ryan, has time on his hands. Time to work out what he can do for his family, to think about how he has impacted his children, Luke and Megan, and what he can do for his granddaughter, Elsie, before he goes. The family resonates with these questions because, after all, what can any of us really do?
