Watch Short Film “COLD” and be reminded of the Christmas Spirit

Through this short film, Waseem Shaikh puts a different spin on the usual Christmas hype while teaching us how to make movies that matter. It is real, raw and relevant.

In a matter of 20 minutes, Shaikh effectively challenges his viewers to live out the Christmas spirit without preaching it. By following the lives of these diverse yet similar characters, you will want to go out and connect to people, smile at them and hear their story.

May this example of beautiful cinematography, character development and story continue to inspire you beyond this Christmas season.
