          The debate between believers and atheists usually goes nowhere. The real issue is: what should fill the gaps created by the end of widespread belief? What should fill the God-shaped hole?

And the people bowed the head and worshipped. 28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they. 29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle. 30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead. LYRICS by David King, aka Duke of Uke: DEATH: Falling stars you wished upon are cinders now and now they're gone their residue festoons my fetid field. Unfeeling husks of lovers past the shells are all that ever last I've taken everything that they concealed. Whoever told you life was fair? Look around you, everywhere the cruelty of nature is displayed! Why the scorn? Why the surprise? Everything that's born must die and it isn't I who made the world that way. What wicked little twist of fate placed you here upon my plate Here, where no one hears your cries? Where was your god to steer you through Perhaps your god's forsaken you Otherwise why lead you here to die? BA (spirit of the dead): I, I know the way how I'll melt away now I know the way. I'm feeling bliss now Dissolved to mist how strangely I go away Now I finally know DEATH: It's merely moments now, moments now until your feeble flesh bends to my will and it will so rest your weary head. There'll be no pain, no pain at all as everything you are dissolves Your fate resolved upon my silky thread. BA: I, I know the way how I'll melt away now I know the way. I'm feeling bliss now Dissolved to mist how strangely I go away Now I finally know (repeat)

                Perihelion is a sort of animated tone poem. It is a short film that toes the line between narrative and non-narrative, essentially having no real beginning, middle or end. The idea being that you could start watching it at any point and it would (hopefully) have the same impact. Visually, I was heavily inspired by the work of a number of German painters from the early 20th century. Notably: Otto Dix, Richard Oelze, Ingrid Griebel-Zietlow, Rudolf Schlichter and Max Ernst, as well as Francisco Goya. This is sort of a tribute to the work of these artists living in a time of Fascism and impending war, which really informed their work in a distinct way.

                    Steven Crosby, a small town missionary in a strange land stumbles upon the lowest road to salvation with the help of a little Mayan girl, a black magic woman, and a saint with a cigar. SYNOPSIS Steven Crosby wakes up in Antigua, Guatemala with a mission: to convert as many locals as he can, armed with only some religious comic books and a couple words of high school Spanish. If he fails, his father, a preacher, will make Steven pack his things and return to Ohio to a life of menial work in the church. His attempts to bring the locals the good news are thwarted by comic misunderstanding, bad luck, and all manner of mishaps. Just as Steven is about to give up, he has a chance encounter with a sodden street vendor, who puts him on a journey to find a shadowy figure named Maximon—a mix of a Mayan God and a Catholic Saint, and the patron of sinners, prostitutes, and drunks. Steven meets a plucky little Mayan girl and a beautiful bartender who help Steven find Maximon, and himself, along the way. With their help, Steven takes the low road to unique brand of salvation.
