    With an emphasis on connecting emotionally with the audience on a deep and subconscious level, 'Empty House' is an experimental documentary that focuses on the residue of memories trapped in physical objects and the rooms in which we live. Can pain be absorbed into the physical world? Drawing from his own life and personal experiences, writer and director Sean Christensen tries to answer this question, by crafting an intimate and artistic look into his past. Through dream images, sound-scapes and physical textures - Empty House puts the audience into the subjective mind and reality of the narrator. Based on his true story, it depicts a family torn apart by divorce - told through the perspectives of the house and furniture that they used to own. Utilizing mixed media, home movies and doll house miniature models, the film creates a collage of mixed media to provoke the subconscious and stir the imaginations of the audience.

    Set on the streets of New York City, HEROES WANTED, explores the idea of one's "hero" status being completely in the mind of the perceiver. The film features an original jazz score composed by New Orleans-native, Kenyatta Beasley, in the days immediately following Hurricane Katrina. His feelings of frustration, anger and sadness during this time were well-channeled into the composition of this riveting score.
