      An elderly gentleman attempts to retrieve forgotten memories while battling the progression and regression of the cycles of life. — A week prior to his passing, my grandfather shared with me his former aspirations of becoming a filmmaker. After numerous hardships, a narrow escape from the Nazis and an immigration to the US, the dream slowly, but surely, faded away. After his passing, I uncovered an archival trove of dust-covered 8mm film that had seemingly not been viewed by anyone for at least a generation. Mesmerized, what unfolded before me was something most people, myself included, have never witnessed before: the development and utter decline of the human body and mind. Motivated by my grandfather's unfulfilled dreams of filmmaking, I decided to piece together a film that he had already unwittingly made. quicksand is not only a personal tribute to my grandfather or father, but to anyone that has ever experienced loss. Whether it be a loss of a loved one, or a loss of memories, quicksand embodies the enigma of life and death. — Exhibited at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC Nationally Televised: Distributed via PBS stations nationwide Winner: "Special Jury Prize" - Las Vegas Film Festival Winner: “Finalist & Scholarship Recipient” – Heartland Film Festival Winner: "Finalist" - YoungArts Cinematic Competition Winner: "Best Student Film" - Fort Lauderdale Int'l Film Festival Winner: "Award of Excellence" - Best Shorts Competition Official Selection: Seattle International Film Festival Official Selection: Woodstock Film Festival Official Selection: DOC NYC Festival Official Selection: National Film Festival ~ Talented Youth (NFFTY) Official Selection: Sidewalk Film Festival Official Selection: Fresh Takes Nat'l Youth Film Festival Official Selection: Great Lakes Int'l Film Festival Official Selection: Yonkers Film Festival Official Selection: Indie Fest USA Int’l Festival Official Selection: Los Angeles Indie Film Festival Official Selection: San Pedro Int'l Film Festival Official Selection: Lovvet Film Festival Official Selection: Short of the Week Honorable Mention: Los Angeles Movie Awards — "It’s truly an inspiring piece of work, effortlessly illustrating the very stuff that makes us human in the first place—our connections to those whom we love." - Ivan Kander (of Short of the Week); http://bit.ly/17VXfm9 — imdb.com/title/tt2807940/ http://lanceoppenheim.com — Director/Cinematographer/Editor: Lance Oppenheim Producer: The Opp-Guide Featuring: Roy Oppenheim & Walter Oppenheim Music: Jóhann Jóhannsson, Sigur Rós & Maxence Cyrin Post-Production Design: J.D.

              Undone is a six minute stop-motion short revolving around an old man who fishes in the tempestuous sea beneath him, and struggles to keep the objects he recovers from slipping through his hands.

                A short film created to show the effect of alzheimer's on my grandfather, Poppa. I previously created a portrait on him, which didn't look at our relationship, but his personality and his connection to my family, but for this piece i really wanted to look at my relationship with him and the effect the illness even has on myself. I involved myself in the piece to show my interaction him and his interaction with me. Hope you enjoy. Thank you to Sunrise for allowing to film and also thank you to my mum. Poppa had a stroke a few days before, so this piece was very emotional when filming and very hard to edit.

                      Is more common than you think It is estimated that as many as 5.4 million people in the United States are living with Alzheimer's. In 2050, the number of people in the United States with Alzheimer's could reach 11-16 million. Because 70 percent of the people with Alzheimer's live at home, the disease impacts millions of family members, friends and caregivers. Gets worse over time Alzheimer's gets worse over time and ultimately is fatal. Although symptoms can vary widely, the first problem many people notice is forgetfulness severe enough to affect their ability to function at home or at work or to enjoy lifelong hobbies. Other symptoms include confusion, getting lost in familiar places, misplacing things, and problems with speaking and writing.
