Being Good

The short film BEING GOOD is about a teenage girl called Embry and her two guardians, the angel Ava and the demon Mal who act as her conscience. While Ava and Mal could easily be considered as “good” and “evil”, the film develops the idea of their humanity and flaws. Being Good is intended to highlight the importance of free will and identity.

Director Statement

"Being Good" has been an incredible experience. A team of 80 remote people from all over the world have brought this beautiful short to life. Being Good had no funding and was created completely from scratch using the online platform Artella. Our team is very proud of what we have achieved and can't wait to share this with the world.
- Jenny Harder

"Being Good may be a peek into the future of film making. A collection of talented and committed artists from a variety of disciplines have come together from all corners of the world to bring this passion project to life. They have each listened to their inner voice and together are creating a beautifully illustrative movie about doing just that. It’s been an exciting project to follow and I so look forward to seeing the final film."
