Our Friends

Because together we are better!

The primary goal of Falling Frames is to increase collaboration among artists. When we say this, we mean it. We have our friends located all over Europe (and also out of Europe). We started enlisting them on our website, if you just need their expertise you can directly contact them, or you can contact us and we will put you in touch. We claim no financial interest in this, we are doing it to promote each other, as together we grow better. If you are an artist and want to become our friend, don't hesitate to contact us with your profile. We don't discriminate on the basis of your experience, location, or anything else. We would honestly enlist you as you are. The only thing we care about is, how enthusiastic you are about working together, and how much you love what you are doing.
