“After a heartbreaking loss, a grandfather struggling to reclaim his passion for painting finds the inspiration to create again.”

Director: Frank E. Abney III
Writers: Frank E. Abney
Streaming: Netflix
Release Date: December 11, 2020

Well I didn’t expect to get all in my feels while doing sit-ups one night, but that is what happened. Canvas is a short film by Frank E. Abney that doesn’t contain any dialogue, but delivers a very heartfelt message none the less. Everyone has had to pick themselves back off their feet after a tough loss and Canvas paints a wonderful picture on how people’s support can help you do that.

  • I should make a promise to myself to watch more Oscar contending short films because (as by there definition) they aren’t a time sucker and the storytelling is original (at least from my limited experience).
