Trailer for my short film, THE CAMERA, screening at HollyShorts 2013.


"Perfect in its simplicity, beautiful and haunting in its visuals, The Camera is a reminder that a great film is in everyone’s grasp, as long as he/she has the creative capacity and appropriate willpower to drop pretension, and quite simply, make something." —Short of the Week

"From its delicate shot composition to an emotionally stirring score, Peter Lewis‘s The Camera is a crash course in great filmmaking." —Film School Rejects Short Film of the Day

"A compelling example of what’s possible when perseverance and resourcefulness meet." —

"Awesome ... 'The Camera' proves that beautiful movies can be made simply and makes you want to get out and make your own!" —Mitch Aunger, planet5D

"Haunting" —
