The Shower Song is a comedic short film that revolves around a mischievous singer's daydreams and adventures in the shower. Through humour and theatrical hyperbole, the project tackles increasingly relevant social topics, like sexism, homophobia/transphobia, mental health and cruelty against animals. For the director, activism can lead to social progress - the opening of the minds, that is. Creative and entertaining projects like The Shower Song can successfully disseminate progressive ideologies around the world, and that's a belief we hold dear. The added fun of it all is that the project was filmed through an aquatic lens, one that replicates the language of water.


The story springs to life when one of the main characters, George, wreaks havoc on a sexist work environment by intentionally triggering the fire alarm. While the sexist executives reel from shock, Agnes, the victim of their sexism, leads a movement, along with her followers, to a beautiful public square where a unique shower dance unfolds around floor-born water fountains.

Homophobia / Transphobia

The Shower Song doesn't shy away from very real social problems, one of them being homophobia (and by extension, transphobia). In this fantasy universe, the showing of hatred is pretty explicit and ugly, and it's presented through the story of Toby, a young man who was kicked out by his parents (who were also portrayed as being part of an anti-gay hateful group). In a sad but touching moment, Toby asks his parents if he can come back home. What will their response be? We can either tell you, or you can go watch The Shower Song to find out for yourself, if you haven't already!

Mental health

The Shower Song is a happy universe, but like in real life, sadness exists, and tragic events have impacted the protagonists. Samantha, for instance, is another character whose brother took his own life following a deep depression. As she copes with this new-found loss, she tries to find ways to remain strong.

Cruelty Against Animals

Rocky, an adorable 6-year-old golden retriever, is incarcerated in a puppy mill and is aching to get out. Thank the universe, he does get rescued by a loving couple even though the other puppies stay behind with the greedy mill owner. If you're curious, we invite you to watch The Shower Song Documentary & Making Of, which delves deeper into the nuances of the topic.

Social Activism & Progress

Social activism takes the shape of a shower dance in The Shower Song, where majestic dancers in royal blue bathing suits dance for the cause, which we come to understand is essentially two-fold: feminism and LGBTQ rights. And the flag representative of the movement? - a blue ribbon that waves in the air and that Maher, a grumpy man not so impressed with at first, ends up waving himself in the famous live-streamed night dance finale.

The Language of Water

"If we don't have the times of our lives producing and filming The Shower Song, might as well pack our bags and go back home!" That was the director's mantra and approach. The production team made sure to keep the vibes really happy for all the performers at all times. This also allowed us to have fun with the filming style, what we coined as putting on an "aquatic lens". Whenever we could and when it made sense, the scene either had a water-related element and was filmed to reflect human movement when inside a pool of water. This is how the director crafted our scenes and how the talents were directed, and the dancers performing the shower dance were told they were the literal personalization of water. If you left the film feeling like you just showered yourself, and went from dry to wet and felt refreshed and ready for a new challenge, we've accomplished our stylistic mission!
