"Composing Life": is a comedic mockumentary written and directed by Jean Ann Garrish, with original music, that explores not only the joy, but also the heartbreak, of being an artist in this day and age.


In this comedy, Marin and her friends, a group of thirty-something artists, fight for their dreams of fulfillment, no matter the cost. No victory, however small, is overlooked, as no wine remains uncorked. Their stories are documented by a brazen Scottish woman and her Russian cameraman, all traveling down the same bumpy road.

Episode 3: She's Everywhere.
