Using IndieGoGo, the film was produced on a budget of $2,500. Speaking about the production process, the director, Shahab Zargari, said, "I am so excited about how this project came together. It was a real community effort including our sponsors, the amazing cast and crew, and all the technical engineers who helped pull it together."
Zargari previously directed the award-winning science fiction short The Crystal Crypt, based on the Philip K. Dick short story of the same name, which starred Yuri Lowenthal (Ben 10: Omniverse, Spider-Man video game), Alex Demkin (Hail, Caesar!), Jordan Jones, and Tara Platt.
My Name is Art tells the story of a young suburbanite, confronted by a belligerent stranger at his front door, who must determine the best way to diffuse the situation to protect himself - and his home.
