“Odessa is Watching” – Happy Holidays from Maestro Filmworks

Screen Shot 2020 01 02 At 10.17.13 AM

This holiday season, our team decided to create a special edition of our Long Story Shorts initiative as our holiday greeting. We decided to take a different take on the holiday spirit and inject some technology into the “Elf on a Shelf” notion by creating a fictional smart IoT device, name Odessa.

Without further ado, we present, Odessa is Watching directed by Bryant Jen.

Happy Holidays from Maestro Filmworks! Thank you to our clients and our people for a successful, creative and collaborative 2019. May the warmth of this holiday season carry over into the new year.
