AAL's filmmaking offshoot, Art Animates Life Films, is a multiple award-winning independent studio. Works created by current and past members include Hooked and Sky Takes a Bite Out of Crime (San Diego Children's Film Festival).

For more than a decade Art Animates Life Films has offered professional quality PSAs and short documentaries So Cal charities and nonprofits like the Charity Wings Arts Center, Wounded Warrior Homes, and the Foundation for Senior Wellbeing at zero cost.

Over its ten-year history, thousands of So Cal residents have attended Art Animates Life events and productions. Tens-of-thousands of dollars have been raised for San Diego area disaster relief, arts nonprofits, a municipal gallery, veterans' relief funds, a community outreach center, an historical society, and several struggling community theaters.
