Over the past few years the production team at The Mercadantes (formerly known as Everynone) have created a legendary reputation for their unique brand of collection films, where similar objects, ideas, or actions are gathered into a video montage. If you haven’t seen Words, Ball, or especially Symmetry, I recommend spending the next 20 minutes of your life doing that. Their latest film is Breath, a meditation on the myriad ways in which people breath. While it may not sound like much in a description, the short packs an emotional wallop, bouncing between the extremes of life and death to fear and passion. Directed and edited by Daniel Mercadante.
