The history of humanity and of our planet in four minutes. An eco-friendly statement developed in a single shot that has it all: humor, action and tragedy.

Edge of Alchemy

Mary Pickford and Janet Gaynor, seamlessly appropriated from their early silent films, are cast into a surreal epic with an upending of the Frankenstein story and a contemporary undercurrent of hive collapse.

Kid Flix

Explore new worlds without leaving the theater! Kid Flix includes the best short films from New York International Children’s Film Festival, the largest film festival for kids and teens.

Men Talk About Mother

Three men remember their mothers in this animated documentary, through interwoven monologues and hand drawn animation, to explore the central relationship of all our lives.

Plasma Vista

Objects and devices become bodily and manipulative. The magician is a composed cartoon machine repeating tricks and equations. When products become prosthetics does the accessory take some emotional control?

The Milliner

A SCAD-commissioned, short cinematic history of hats that chronicles the evolution of millinery and the considerations of modern hat makers as they reinterpret the form. With stop-motion visuals and sartorial special effects, 'The Milliner' is a playful exploration of the history of hats and design.

Three Red Sweaters

As visual media becomes ever more ubiquitous, do we need our memories? Are our smart phones a barrier between us and experience? I examine these questions with the help of my grandfather’s footage and memories as he nears the end of his life.
