1. In a time where the world is ever more connected and unbordered, Marc Silver considers whether crowds are a force for oppression, or a potential for resistance. 'There are no others, there is only us' is a powerful visual metaphor illustrating the nature of collaboration and the power of crowds, with music composed by producer Ben Frost.

  4. Where Inside was made by filming very specific colors in a sunny, indoor location. Knowing i was going to completely abstract the image, I used a combination of hand held and very stable shots to create a tension.

    The music is from a composition by my friend and teacher Cheryl E. Leonard http://www.allwaysnorth.com/
    Instruments in Trees.

    From as far as I can remember til now I have had a fascination with examining cloth very close up. the color and texture of the fabric creates a feeling very similar to drug use or sex, and this video is an attempt to show this 'high'

  5. "Everything is Incredible” is a moving short documentary about Agustin, a Honduran man who despite being severely disabled by polio, has been building his own helicopter for the past 50 years. The helicopter, which resides in Agustin’s small house, is made out of bicycle parts, rebar, and other scavenged materials. It is more an elaborate kinetic sculpture than an aircraft.
