Michael Garfield can only be described as a polymath, a renaissance man, something of a debonair brain-melter. At times, exchanging words with him honestly felt kind of like speaking to a library with a mouth. I'm not really sure how he does it. Michael is also a serial creative. He writes for a number of websites, paints and makes music.

Katy Walker and Joel Mejia are two of the main creative forces behind Time Is Art. A film that explores "an artist's search for inspiration in a money-driven society that shuns creativity, and the human search for meaning in a seemingly meaningless world. A cinematic meditation along the lines of Waking Life and Samsara... A film less concerned with linear storytelling and more open to the cycle patterns, the hidden meanings of symbols and the dreamlike overlapping of people, places and moments."
