Phantom Couriers: Ghost in the Machine

a documentary in English

What has the ability to be everywhere, or at many places at once? What can exist simultaneously inside and outside the social mechanisms of urban life? Phantom Couriers: Ghost in the Machine works on several interpretive layers, superimposing beautiful film images, a genuine narrative and a subculture that many feel curious about, but few are able to penetrate.

This documentary short film tells the story of Phantom Couriers, Vancouver's longest-running independent courier company. Mark Huggan—owner, dispatcher, storyteller extraordinaire—relates how he started the company, and how he continues to retain both his couriers, and his clients. Bike messengers Brandon, Sarah and Dan describe the fast-paced world of being a courier in Vancouver in this intimate and swift portrait.

Cicada Princess

a narrative film in English

Directed by Mauricio Baiocchi http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0047821/
Narrated by Stephen Fry http://stephenfry.com/
Music by Jesse Solomon Clark http://agentsdelfuturo.com/

"Cicada is a gift for one person and the world at the same time. I had thought that a gesture of kindness and love if made just right would resonate itself into many more such acts." -Mauricio Baiocchi, director

Check out this Behind The Scenes of the scoring sessions: https://vimeo.com/60517269

While Cicada Princess was still in production, I started composing some themes based on the story. I visited the set a few times, so I had an idea about the look of film. I probably had a feature film's worth of music for this short. Once there was a locked edit it became clear that, although the story is kind of epic and operatic in scale, the score needed to provide a thread to tie together the quickly-moving story together.

Do We Have Free Will?

a lecture in English

Do humans have free will or are our decisions entirely products of chemistry, physics, and genetics? Is there a difference between the brain and the mind? Could a neuroscientist with enough knowledge of our brains know every decision that we'll make? The answers to these questions cut to the heart of what it means to be human.

Die Altkleider-Lüge - Wie Spenden zum Geschäft werden - die reportage - NDR - ARD

a report in German

Die meisten glauben, dass die hierzulande gesammelten Altkleiderspenden direkt in die Katastrophengebiete der Welt gehen. Was sie nicht wissen: Der größte Teil der gespendeten Bekleidung wird weiterverkauft - zum Kilopreis. Einige Hilfsorganisationen platzieren oft nur ihr Logo auf den Sammelcontainern von Altkleiderfirmen.

Ein geringer Teil der Kleidung wird direkt in Deutschland an Bedürftige ausgegeben. Die besten noch brauchbaren Sachen gehen nach Osteuropa und in die arabischen Staaten. Sechzig Prozent der heimischen Ware gelangt nach Afrika. Doch was passiert dort mit den Altkleidern? Die Reportage-Autoren Michael Höft und Christian Jentzsch haben in Tansania nach Antworten gesucht. Ihr Fazit: Nicht nur deutsche Firmen und einige große Hilfsorganisationen verdienen gut an den Kleiderspenden, auch für viele Händler in Afrika sind Altkleiderspenden ein lukratives Geschäft. Selbst die Ärmsten der Armen müssen dafür bezahlen. Die Billigkleider überschwemmen die Märkte des Landes und zwingen die afrikanische Textilbranche in die Knie

"An elegant and very affecting portrait of big-city loneliness and the instant connections that go “ping” and are gone seconds later. The emotions are halting, delicate, true." -Jeffrey Wells, Hollywood Elsewhere

Cole - inFamous live action short film

a narrative film in English

When Cole develops incredible powers after surviving a lethal city-wide explosion, he has a life-changing decision to make: protect himself and those closest to him or stand up to the ruthless militia taking over the city.

"Cole" is a fan film of the Playstation video game series "Infamous" and is freely based on the events of the first two games.

Entirely self-produced, the short film was made over the course of 2013 in Bordeaux, France, with the challenge of creating a "mini-blockbuster" with little to no budget, and to pay tribute the the inFamous fanchise.

Lorsque Cole développe de puissants super-pouvoirs suite à une explosion à l'échelle de la ville, il doit prendre une décision : se protéger, lui et ses proches, ou faire face à la redoutable milice qui paralyse la ville.

Le film "Cole" est une adaptation du jeu vidéo "inFamous", dont les événements sont librement inspirés.

Entièrement auto-produit, le court-métrage a été réalisé en 2013 à Bordeaux, France, avec comme défi de créer un "mini-blockbuster" avec un budget très serré, et pour rendre hommage à la série inFamous.

THE GATHERING SQUALL

a narrative film in English

Part psychological thriller and part provocative character study, A TEACHER explores the unraveling of a young high school teacher, Diana (Lindsay Burdge), after she begins an affair with one of her teenage students, Eric (Will Brittain). What starts as a seemingly innocent fling becomes increasingly complex and dangerous as the beautiful and confident Diana gets fully consumed by her emotions, crossing boundaries and acting out in progressively startling ways. Lindsay Burdge delivers a deeply compelling and seamlessly naturalistic performance that brings us into the mind of an adult driven to taboo against her better judgment.
