Lawton Meyer, “Acorn
Life is changing, and a grandfather and granddaughter spend what could be one of their last moments together, before she moves across the country, in one of their favorite spots. As he always has, he imparts his wisdom to her and gives her a gift to remember him by.
Juli Worcman McGill, “Two” and “Parenthesis”
The impetus behind Two is the necessity to reflect on relationships. I decided to tell a simple story that was still open to interpretation. Because of this, I hesitate to explain what I think Two is really all about. My biggest joy has been in discovering the nuances and possibilities in the eyes and interpretations of its audience; how, despite its simplicity, it’s a narrative that can be taken in in so many different ways.
Parenthesis is the result of having a camera, having a sister, and having access to a beautiful house. I am always driven to experiment with how little you need to create something that is both sound in form and also makes people think. I hope parenthesis upholds these goals not only in my mind, but also in that of its viewers.
Thomas Pistor Eisenman, “Monkfish”
A lonely taxi driver in Poughkeepsie, New York infiltrates and antagonizes a CB radio channel, where a tight-knit community of middle-aged men spend their days conversing.
Allyson Ferrara, “Confessions”
Red Neckromancer slices and dices their way to a new lineup in the gritty horror-comedy music video for Confessions of a Gravedigger directed by Allyson Ferrara.
Ron Pucherelli “Game On” and “Two Lost Souls”
Game On. Arriving at her favorite jogging spot, Sara hears a news bulletin that a mental patient, Jack LaMont, escaped during the night and is heading to the area. She scoffs that unless Jack is a marathon runner, there’s no way he could cover the thirty mile trip. Little does she know that she is in for the run of her life.
Two Lost Souls. ‘Two lonely people are drawn to each other by means of some spiritual guidance’.
Loch Phillips, “The Last Refuge”
In Utica, the Mohawk Valley Resource Center for Refugees refuses to become yet another casualty of tightening federal immigration policy. The need to support new arrivals as well as situated refugees remains urgent. And the Center knows something many don’t: refugees are helping save their city.
