Dcera/Daughter (Official Trailer)
This first piece is merely a trailer, with the full 14 minute short available with payment through Vimeo. Though I have not watched the full version yet, I needed to highlight the unique camera work for a stop motion film. The shaky, fast paced camera movements from the start of this trailer really add to the urgency. I love this!
Should you hide your pain? Close yourself inside your inner world, full of longing for your father’s love and its displays? Or should you understand and forgive before it is too late?

This second piece is a wonderfully surreal animated experiment. I don't yet know what Cole is using to create this, but it is really a feast for the eyes.
music: keyboard - "shingles"
This piece has been in my bookmarks for awhile, and since revisiting it, I had to include here. With the craziness of life as it has been, and the pandemic we are still in the midst of, this film reminds me to not take things for granted...including the very breath we breathe.
A film about the invisible life-force.

Body of the Mined
This last film is violent, so you have been warned. The action, and interesting 'not the future you'd expect' type of story is intriguing. I'm interested to know more about some of these characters...
A quiet, young woman moves into a new building and meets a reclusive engineer at the brink of completing a bizarre, extraordinary machine.
Thanks for watching!
