Flüchtlinge und Urlaub: Kos zwischen Verzweiflung, Wut und Hoffnung | 7 Tage | NDR

a report in German

Vor Kurzem war die griechische Insel Kos bekann als Surferparadies und Ferienidyll. Heute spricht man nur noch von Kos, der Flüchtlingsinsel. Kann man, ja "darf" man auf einer Insel Urlaub machen, vor deren Küste Hunderte Menschen ertrunken sind, an deren Traumstrände sich Tausende verzweifelter Menschen geschleppt haben? Auch heute noch, zu Beginn der Feriensaison, suchen Flüchtlinge hier Hilfe. Die Folge: Die Urlauber bleiben weg, die Inselbevölkerung kämpft nach der Finanzkrise nun um jeden Touristen. Was passiert mit den Inselbewohnern, die ohne Touristen ihre Existenzgrundlage verlieren? Ein Dilemma.

DVDs and Limited Prints from the film available at:

And here is an uplifting story about how I learned to draw as a kid, entitled Asthma Tech:


In this "crouching love, hidden breakup" story, inspired by 50's Shanghai water ink animation & kung fu films, themes of distance, tradition, art and longing dominate a telephonic conversation as a martial arts tango provides the visual backdrop.

Shannon Kook, star of Degrassi the Next Generation and The Conjuring, won the best voice performance at the ACTRA awards for his role on the film. Vid Cousins composed the music based on an original musical theme by Kid Koala.

The film won Best Art Direction Award at Anima Mundi, Best Canadian Shortwork at the Whistler Film Festival, AnimAsian award at the Toronto International Reel Asian Film Festival, Audience Choice Award at the Athens Animation Festival in upstate NY.

The Sandman

a documentary in English

‘The Sandman’ is a short film featuring the Trona, California High School Football team as they train and go through Hell Week in preparation for the upcoming Fall 2015 season.

"It makes Friday Night Lights look like a cakewalk." Digg.com

Directed by Diego Contreras.

Created for the www.filmsaboutnumbers.com series | No. 7

Footage available for licensing at filmsupply.com/filmmakers/diego-contreras/47

Inspired by the biblical story of Jericho, where the Israelites marched and shouted around the fortified wall of an impenetrable city for 7 days, and 7 times on the 7th day. As the army shouted, the walls collapsed, and they took over the city. The film presents the Trona team doing their powerful chants 7 times as they prepare to go to battle against teams much larger than their own.

I met these kids by happenstance while scouting for a different project down in Trona. It's been an honor getting to know and hang out with them and the beautiful people of Trona. I've been heavily inspired by the coach and his team's passion, faith, and brotherhood. I hope this film can inspire others as much as they inspired me.
