An experimental short film that captures the transmutation of dead Joshua Trees into works of art as a way to explore change and renewal. Created for “Hello, Again,” an initiative by Lincoln Motor Company that asks filmmakers to reimagine the familiar into something fresh and new. Set in the magical high desert of Southern California, “War Paint for Trees” takes a surreal and unexpected journey that is deeply personal and intensely cosmic.

No motion graphics were used in the creation of this film.
