        In an abandoned beach house, a solitary girl finds a mysterious camera that reveals something unexpected. ------------------------ "Perfect in its simplicity, beautiful and haunting in its visuals, The Camera is a reminder that a great film is in everyone’s grasp, as long as he/she has the creative capacity and appropriate willpower to drop pretension, and quite simply, make something." —Short of the Week "From its delicate shot composition to an emotionally stirring score, Peter Lewis‘s The Camera is a crash course in great filmmaking." —Film School Rejects Short Film of the Day "A compelling example of what’s possible when perseverance and resourcefulness meet." —DirectorsNotes.com "Awesome ... 'The Camera' proves that beautiful movies can be made simply and makes you want to get out and make your own!" —Mitch Aunger, planet5D "Haunting" —FStoppers.com ------------------------ Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TheCameraShortFilm Behance: http://bit.ly/Yhsthe Follow me on twitter: @thispeterlewis Listen to the original score here: https://soundcloud.com/peterlewismusic/the-camera-original-score-1 Aside from a few unfinished running-around-in-the-woods-with-guns experiments from my early teens, this is my first film. I made it because I love all the different aspects of filmmaking, because I was tired of my fear of failure, and because I wanted to see what would happen if I just finished one. Maybe this will lead to bigger and better films; maybe not. Either way I learned something. The story was largely born from its constraints. It had to be doable in my free time, and I had to be able to shoot it during my vacation in Nags Head, NC—with a budget of only $50, to cover the props (I'd previously owned the Canon T2i, lenses, and Logic Pro, and used the free 30-day trial of FCPX). I wanted it to be a simple story with a mysterious twist or two. I got lots of advice from fellow filmmakers—Andrew, Mitchell, Kyle, Brian, Shepherd, Drew, David, and others. If you like the film, thank you Andrew, Mitchell, Kyle, Brian, Shepherd, Drew, and David. If you thought it was rubbish, they only tried to make it better than it was. And thanks again to Abbie and Gabe, without whose talents I couldn't have made it. Some have asked about Emily; the film wasn't written about her (she passed away while it was in post-production), but she was a dear friend of my family and many others, and it was an honor to dedicate it to her memory. Many of you know far more about filmmaking than I do, so please feel free to offer any critique.

                  Upon the advice of the stars, a lonely wolf decides to leave his forest for the big city to try to be someone else. This short, stop-motion film was created completely in-house (including the sound design) and reflects our passion for craft, production and eccentricity. It combines beautiful paper craft with puppetry and tells a tale that is both thought provoking and fantastical.

                    NOON is a scene from a completed feature screenplay. The short sets up the world’s unique premise and introduces our protagonist, Gray, a coyote numbed to the cruelty of the world and his part in it. We watch Gray struggle to salvage what humanity still exists within him when profit is pitted against morality. www.noonfilm.com www.facebook.com/noonthefilm Representation: Jill McElroy of Management 360 || 310.272.7000 Jason Burns and Peter Dodd of United Talent Agency || 310.273.6700 PARTIAL CREDITS: Written and Directed by Kasra Farahani CAST Gray - Billy Khoury Peter - Junes Zahdi Sgt Knowles - Bill Oberst Jr Mother - Charlene Modeste Samira - Aleah E.
