The 1950’s Utopian Fantastical World of Elgin Park

Today I’d like to share a short 10 minute documentary film ‘Elgin Park’ from Sundance Film Festival award-winning documentary director/producer Danny Yourd.

Elgin Park is a 1950’s utopian fantastical world – and an optical illusion. Artist Michael Paul Smith’s imaginative town – composed entirely of miniatures – delighted audiences worldwide when his photo series went viral. For the first time, the documentary Elgin Park dives into the life of this charming, reclusive artist to reveal the dark inspiration behind his work.

I’m certain you will enjoy both the work of the artist and the masterful storytelling in this documentary.

Director. Danny Yourd
Cinematographer. John Pope
Production Company: Animal
Editor: Mike LaHood
Sound Design/Mix: Defacto Sound
