1. "Our family has retreated to a mis-shapen little lake in northwest Michigan for 103 years. Great-Granddad had a rule that became a camp rite: swim to Birdseye Island in the middle of the lake and back. Doing so meant you were ready to canoe and swim on your own.

    It’s our coming of age, our rite of passage, our Birdseye Rule."
    -Eleanor Rae Smith

    The second film in a series exploring places, The Rule is a short visual poem about family, tradition, and the moments of our youth that define who we are today.

  3. An ode to planet earth, solely told with organic fluids and a tiny crystal ball.

    Sometimes, the complexity of simplicity makes us fail to preserve the fundament of all we are and all we represent. But reaching awareness is not about the end, it is about the beginning. SINGULARITY takes us back to zero hour, 4.5 billion years back in time. It is the story of an indescribable hazard and a singular fortune: the fortune of being a human.

    This is organic FX from terracollage. Household ingredients and ink. Strictly 2D, no CGI.
    Headphones highly recommended!
