1. Footage from an untitled 'ghost film' in the Baloos series still in progress. The germ comes from Craig Keller's short written piece called 'The Bridge', about a scene in the 1922 film 'Nosferatu'.

  2. 0-murderme 77m

    A feature that’s part concert film, part visual abstraction, part interactive dramatic experiment. It began when Ross filmed the band Warmer Milks in concert. Instead of creating a video to one song, he began to devise a concept film to the entire live recording. He cut his teeth on editing with this piece and it contains sections of superimpositions that are alternately ravishing and startling. Later, Ross decided the film’s oblique narrative and disconnected monologues didn’t sustain its 77 minute length. Rather than reedit it, he’s added to it in live performances. He’s used embryonic theatrical scenes, multiple projections, shadow play, and musical interjections to suggest another dimension behind the screen. In this way, murderme continues to be a work in progress.

    Actress - Holly Andrews

  5. Baloos#17 3 Songwriters (2 versions) 7m & 1hr
    --------------------------------------------------------
    A relatively simple document of three songwriters in performance: Bo White, Erika Blatnik, and Ben Henry. It’s silent for your pleasure. The piece encourages you to focus on the gestures, guitar strumming, and mic emoting. It comes alive with the climatic footage of Henry as he burrows into his performance, the camera seeming to capture the moment from inside the performance itself.
    -Jeff Jackson
