Almost Nothing - short edit

an experimental film in no language

‘Almost Nothing’ explores psychological states of the mind as it focuses on a man’s inner turmoil.

This was my first short film, made with the help of close friends and with no budget. It was made in memory of those who we have lost along the way, and will hopefully show anyone who suffers that they are not alone.

So Far, So Close (Yugen pt. 2)

an experimental film in no language

So Far, So Close Part two of my Yugen(幽玄) series
“a profound, mysterious sense of the beauty of the universe… and the sad beauty of human suffering”
A playful look into what might make up the world around us, or a distant galaxy just as it's being born. Imagination wanders and finds itself lost in the infinite unknown.
Part one https://vimeo.com/80229478

**2014 Ramstock Film Festival, Richmond Virginia**
**2014 Resonate Festival Belgrade Serbia** (Best of Punta y Raya)
**2014 Animuza Festival Poznan, Poland** (Best of Punta y Raya)
**2014 Punto y Raya Festival in Reykjavik, Iceland** (Best of Punta y Raya)
**2014 Streetlight: Roman Susan Gallery, Chicago IL**

So Far, So Close, was an attempt to create a visual piece that felt both astronomical and microscopic. I created the imagery using ink and plexiglass layered on top of each other. The depth it created was surprising! Once I was done filming I was going over the footage and found that as beautiful and captivating as these environments were, needed a subject. That's where the animations came into play. The childlike drawings are very humorous against the cosmic backgrounds.I wanted my drawings to interact with the space and give a reason for the movement on screen. I also see them as little characters floating through these spaces. While you are watching, imagine yourself to be an observer, not necessarily looking for a beginning and an end, but simply looking through a telescope (or a microscope!) on a distant world yet to be discovered. Enjoy!

The Colors of Feelings

an experimental film in no language

"The Colors of Feelings" is an experimental dreamlike video rocking us smoothly through circular moves. It is also an analogy of feelings such as anger, love, sadness and joy ; they mix and eventually ease.

The visual compositions have been created out of paint, oil, milk, honey and cinnamon.

This work was inspired by Ruslan Khasanov.

Kiss - A Love Story

an experimental film in no language

Fresh off the the festival circuit, we proudly present the internet premiere of our short film Kiss.

"Le soleil est le passé, le terre est le présent et la lune est le futur."

As Paul Auster once said “The sun is the past, the earth is the present and the moon is the future.” In our first independent short film we explore the consequence of something as innocent as a kiss. A love story between the sun and the moon. We believe that every solar eclipse is the moons attempt to reach the sun... x

Beyond This Place

Beyond This Place explores the ideas of solitude, sexuality, and discovery. In a time where sexual orientation isn't as simple as being born a certain way, but rather a regulated choice. The inability to make a choice consequently exiles young individuals to fend for themselves.

Refuge
