About Making Minimalism

Creating our documentary, Minimalism, was simple, but not easy. A few years back we jumped in our tour bus (an old Toyota Corolla) and spoke with people around the country about how simple living had changed their lives.

Now, with Making Minimalism, our minimalist director, Matt D’Avella, is deconstructing how we made the film from the very beginning. You’ll get a look at never-before-seen footage as he details all of our big wins, failures, breakthroughs, and discoveries.
