These are the filmmakers behind the stories

Sean Osorio

Founder

From a young age, Sean Osorio had a passion for film-making. During his weekends and summer breaks Osorio would direct elaborate home movies featuring his family and friends. He honed his craft at the University of Central Florida by continuing to make short narrative films. Always experimenting with different camera techniques and storytelling forms. Upon moving to Atlanta, Osorio discovered the growing Free Art Friday movement and decided to shift gears by making a short documentary about the extraordinary artists who make up Atlanta’s Free Art Friday community.
