Take magazine article about SPLIT TICKET:
Writer/Director Statement: "I was intrigued by a historical incident recounted in Chris Matthews' book 'Kennedy and Nixon: The Rivalry That Shaped Postwar America' in a chapter called 'Strangers On A Train.' In April of 1947, just three months after being sworn in as freshman congressmen, future presidents John F. Kennedy, age 29, and Richard M. Nixon, age 34, took a trip together to McKeesport, Pennsylvania, where they debated an upcoming labor bill before a civic group of 150 people. Afterward, the two friends went to a diner for hamburgers and then shared a sleeping compartment on the Capitol Limited overnight train back to Washington. They drew straws for the lower bunk, which Nixon won. I thought that fascinating true event would make a exciting jumping-off point for a Twilight Zone-ish story about two American icons. Our short film, SPLIT TICKET, is the result." – Alfred Thomas Catalfo • catalfo.com

An ode to letting in the fears of heartbreak and failure and riding on the crest of those feelings.
“Turn those broken dreams, into rainbows of lazer beams…and keep dancing"
After Paskalev is confronted by “Death”, a young, inoffensive man with his customary questionnaire on life and regrets, Paskalev is granted one final wish; to express himself through dance. The scene unfolds in a cheaply converted old swimming pool, as Mik plays out his routine under the gaze and judgement of Death. “A Witness in the Shadow of Love”. The dance slowly inspires a yearning and rapport between both characters as they come together for the last throes of the video. Bringing home the final release and optional metaphors.
