Welcome to Tree of Life: Branching Out, a collaborative writing challenge where creative minds meet epic film music!
Writers representing all genres from across the globe were invited to contribute their own chapter to an album-inspired story, collectively written over the course of 26 days. Each writer found inspiration in a featured composition from the motion picture advertising music production house, audiomachine’s TREE OF LIFE album.
These clever storytellers spun the tale in whatever direction they chose, picking up where the previous writer left off within a 24 hour window, resulting in the ultimate collaborative tale.
