Hello!

My name is Emily Schulz, I am a student at Boston University, getting my Master’s in Film. I currently live in Los Angeles until December. My thesis project is a script for a documentary I am working on. The documentary is about the tiny house movement, specifically the tiny house community.

I am looking for a few friends to help answer some questions for me, in hopes to use your statements in my project. I would be asking questions about your involvement in the community, your backgrounds in how you got involved, and relationships you have made through the tiny house lifestyle. I am preferably looking for people who have either already built their house, or are currently living in it. That being said, the more people I could speak to the better.

If you are interested, or you know someone who would be interested in helping me out, please contact me! You can reach me though email or through phone number. I would love to hear from any and all of you!

Best Wishes Wherever You Are.
