What do you get when you cross a filmmaker and a puppeteer stuck in quarantine?
You get We Are in This Apart. Filmed during our toddler’s nap times with limited resources save for a smart phone, the internet, and a partner with a PhD in puppetry, We Are in This Apart takes our collective longing for joyous interconnection and interprets it through the eyes of our protagonist who our First AD toddler named “Coco”.
