The Weinstein Company is producing five shorts for a film series titled Life Is Amazing in partnership with Lexus. It will feature filmmakers from the U.S., Europe, Asia Pacific, China and Japan, selected jointly by Harvey Weinstein, TWC COO David Glasser and Lexus Media Manager Teri Hill. The directors, chosen on the basis of their previous work, will represent a different part of the world, as well as a different genre of filmmaking. The first and only director announced so far is Justin Tipping, whose short film NANI premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival. The film series will premiere in early 2013.
