All Skate, Everybody Skate

Documentary Short

Near the southern tip of Topsail Island, NC you'll find a typical small town post office.  But, if you climb the stairs to the second floor, you'll find a roller skating rink that is over 50 years old. Behind the counter of both the post office and the rink you'll find Miss Doris.  ALL SKATE, EVERYBODY SKATE is a portrait of a woman in her late seventies who has known hard times and met them head-on with grit and an extraordinary work ethic that has kept her climbing that wooden staircase each evening to rent and repair skates, spin vintage 45s, and weave smoothly in-between the tourists in her white skates with the red wheels.

Between the Rock and the Commonwealth

Documentary Short

BETWEEN THE ROCK AND THE COMMONWEALTH examines the tale of Indian Head Rock, a 6-ton boulder that resided in the Ohio River near South Shore, Kentucky, hidden 16 feet below the waters surface for 87 years.  The rock earned its name from the crude carving of a face on its surface.  From some of the earliest media documentation it appears the rock drew travelers from far and wide to witness the local landmark.  The creation of the lock and dam system on the Ohio River in the 20th century caused the water levels to rise and the rock to disappear.  In 2007 a team of Portsmouth Ohio historians located the rock and removed it from the river with hopes that its rediscovery would celebrate the history of the region.  To their surprise many Kentuckians felt as though the rock belonged to them, thus beginning a battle between two states, which captivated the nation, over the ownership of Indian Head Rock.

Food City: Feast of the Five Boroughs

Documentary Short

In the not-too-distant past, all food was local.  Hyper-local, in fact: if you didn’t grow it or find it yourself, you didn’t eat it.  Today our food is hyper-global: wherever you are, you can get your food from any corner of the world.  What might a return to hyper-localism look like today, now that over half the world’s population lives in cities?  In FOOD CITY, the filmmakers, Matt and Lars endeavor to find out by challenging themselves to serve a four-course meal for eight people - using only ingredients grown, caught, or foraged from within the five boroughs of New York City.

Fusion

Experimental

FUSION is a step toward cinematography.  It is a line between cinema and video. “Edit” and “installation” convey a feeling ... a unique feeling ... and every human being feels in a unique way.  That is how cinema and the audience meet. Installation should be close to a poem, therefore, the pictures should replace the words.  The important pictures are the inspirational and poetical ones that fascinate us with new discoveries just by staring at them.

Oyster

In enviable weather, on the southeast coast of Australia, a punt glides over Merimbula Lake towards an oyster lease, with a passionate young oyster farmer Dom at the helm.  It’s a romantic picture of tranquil beauty and a life close to nature, attuned to the rhythm of the tides.  But Dom and fellow locals swear the water’s getting warmer and the storms more severe.  The only oyster it’s legal for them to grow in the lake is the famous gourmet’s delight, the Sydney Rock Oyster. Taking three years to mature, it’s highly vulnerable to pollution and changes in water temperature and salinity.  There are diseases too and the threat of competition from a much faster growing non-native species, the Pacific Oyster.  OYSTER follows Dom and Pip into their home, their work-shed, out on their punt and into the water, to see what it’s like to be raising two energetic young boys, while you’re working big hours to keep a few million oysters alive, and any decision you make to deal with the pressures of climate change, environmental damage and increasing disease could have far reaching consequences.
