    FOR SOME, THE DAY IS THEIR ENEMY. THIS IS THEIR STORY. This experimental short explores our craving for the evening, and the need to hide from the daylight. It focuses on the tension of NYC, its movement, how we are always being watched, and the desire for nightfall. It takes inspiration from the works of David Fincher, Jonathan Glazer, 90's palm series music videos, and of course The Prodigy's iconic sound. Shot on Red Dragon, Red Epic, Sony A7s, and the Mark iii in raw.

          Bullets, Trees, and Brotherhood is a short personal film. Last winter my closest friends and I all visited our dear friend Nick at his farm in Chelsea, Vermont. He had recently become a father. I casually filmed throughout the weekend on my 5D Mk ii and after reviewing all these intimate moments, I decided to cut this together. It was a beautiful weekend of working on his farm, reflecting on our time together as childhood friends, and where we stand in this beautiful world of ours. Bullets, Trees, and Brotherhood is a tribute to long lasting relationships, our connection to nature, and our brevity. I hope you enjoy. Directed, photographed, and edited by Ben Jacks Features: Nick, Jon, Chris, Alex, Kane, Austin, Ben, and the amazing animals of Longest Acres Farm. Narration: Bruce Jacobson Score: A. Taylor: 'Treeline At Night' from themusicbed.com Please note, while this film features gun use, no animals were harmed or ever in harms way.

              This is the first chapter of a short doc series entitled S.O.S - a.k.a SENSE OF SELF. In this series we explore a subject's identify and how they currently define their SENSE OF SELF, and what truly makes them who they are today. This chapter features SWANN. She is 25, a veteran of the US Air Force and comes from a military family. After multiple family members have struggled with cancer and her desire to change careers, SWANN is now creating a distinctly different future for herself. This film looks at these new beginnings. Thank you for taking the time to view this. I hope you enjoy. It was made with love and great collaborators.
