“When it was over I was lying on the sofa with a cushion on my face, whimpering in fear and paranoia. Ingenious and harrowing... left me reeling”
(Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian)

“A sucker-punch of a film that grabs the viewer's attention from the first frame and never lets go. Being topical and provocative are marks of a great short film but this is a movie you can't take your eyes off”
(Edinburgh International Film Festival, 2007)

“A frighteningly realistic take on violence that deftly blends emotional complexity with a keen understanding of the darker side of youth culture”
(Palm Springs International Short Film Festival, USA 2007)

“A powerful, dramatic short about a subject that all of us know in one form or another”
(Rendezvous with Madness Film Festival, Toronto 2007)

“A powerful piece of film summing up the UK zeitgeist of hoodies, happy-slapping and gang culture, while giving us a truthful character-driven drama of a son's disappointment with his Father”
(Hamburg International Short Film Festival, Germany 2007)

Fifty People, One Question: New Orleans

a documentary in English

When we set out to film, it was another New Orleans day. Once you get past the inevitable grime and heat, you feel a certain energy or “atmosphere”. Like a kid throwing himself into a mud fight.

It’s a simple question. And the answers can lead us anywhere. So go ahead, ask yourself…

Visit http://fiftypeopleonequestion.com and post your response.

We also asked this question in New York, NY. Check it out: http://vimeo.com/2164626

"This feeling, this inevitable feeling, it comes and goes but it never actually leaves. It consumes me.
I’m here for you…waiting, waiting for you to succumb, but you don’t.
Just like you promised, you’re back yet back is not here, its onto the next.
If you stayed, would I be whole again? Would this feeling disappear? - or will resent ultimately be the test, the
test that never rests"

a narrative film in English


BAG MAN is the understated story of a 12 year old African American boy, who takes us on an introspective journey out of the city and into the remote countryside of upstate New York. With a mysterious duffle bag in hand, its contents unknown to us, we journey from the urban hustle of Harlem, into the winter-ravaged woodlands a world away. On the road, we slowly discover his real intentions, and the startling significance of what is hidden inside a young boy’s bag.

Directors JONATHAN & JOSH BAKER thrive on combining hauntingly beautiful imagery with quiet layered emotional experiences. The film juxtaposes high-concept visuals with the most regular of everyday characters and environments, creating an extremely relatable story that engages on multiple levels. Collaboration with the highest quality creative talent is essential with all projects they take on, and BAG MAN is no different – from cinematographer NICOLAS KARAKATSANIS (Academy Award Nominated ‘Bullhead’, ‘The Drop’), to LEGACY EFFECTS (‘Iron Man’, ‘Pacific Rim’, ‘Avatar’), to THE MILL (World-leading, international VFX studio), to colorist TOM POOLE (‘Drive’, ’12 Years A Slave’, ‘Foxcatcher’), to original music by Brooklyn-based threesome BIRD COURAGE.

The Progressive Income Tax: A Tale of Three Brothers

a lecture in English

"The Progressive Income Tax" is one of those economic terms that gets bandied about, but few actually know what it means or how it works. This tale of three similar brothers with three different incomes (but one shared expense) helps explain the tax system under which we live. Adapted from an article by noted investor and economist, Kip Hagopian, and narrated by actress Carolyn Hennesy of "General Hospital" and "True Blood" fame, this animated story will change the way you think about how you pay your taxes.
