The Disappearance of Savanna Grinnell

Directed by Daniel Pico
Narrative Short
United States | 7 min | 2022

What happens in space doesn’t always stay there.

A film set is only as good as its crew,. I’m incredibly grateful to my team of friends and family that made this film a reality. Not everyone would have stayed on set to endure the record-breaking -27 degree windchill we faced in the March of 2022.
