1. "For optimal sound and video reproduction we recommend you play this film loud & click the HD icon."

    A journey through time & space,and the fight for existence.
    A dark premise contrasted with divine imaginary
    creates a hypnotic ride of tone and emotion.
    Only "in-camera" effects were used to capture SCI-FLY.
    We filmed the wonders of our own world,
    in order to create another.

    Sit back, and "Surrender to the Cosmos."

  4. For more then 20 years Charles Manson has refused to communicate to the outside world. Until now. These are actual never before heard phone conversations between Canadian best selling author Marlin Marynick and Charles Manson.


    This will be distributed by the The Criterion Collection's website on their FilmStruck paired with the film EASY Rider. Go watch! Intro by yours truly (Not Manson. Sorry).

    1969 saw the release of Dennis Hopper's Easy Rider and the media circus ignited by the Manson murders, two seismic cultural events that cast a shadow on the freewheeling good vibes of the hippie era. This program brings together two films that capture the spirit of that chaotic year. In the 2012 experimental documentary Old Man, Brooklyn-based artist Leah Shore combines eye-popping animation with never-before-heard phone calls that Charles Manson made from jail to the infamous cult leader and Canadian author Marlin Marlin M. Marynick. In his directorial debut, Hopper created one of the great American road movies, a counterculture sensation that mixed New Wave-inspired aesthetics, a bold rock soundtrack, and star-making performances by Peter Fonda and Jack Nicholson.

  5. Directed by Mauricio Baiocchi http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0047821/

    "Cicada is a gift for one person and the world at the same time. I had thought that a gesture of kindness and love if made just right would resonate itself into many more such acts." -Mauricio Baiocchi, director

    Check out this Behind The Scenes of the scoring sessions: vimeo.com/60517269

    While Cicada Princess was still in production, I started composing some themes based on the story. I visited the set a few times, so I had an idea about the look of film. I probably had a feature film's worth of music for this short. Once there was a locked edit it became clear that, although the story is kind of epic and operatic in scale, the score needed to provide a thread to tie together the quickly-moving story together.
