Controller
Beautiful, in-control filmmaking.
All you can really do is bow before this level of filmmaking excellence.

Dia de los Muertos
A short story with a powerfully emotional punch. Wow.

Contre temps
Beautiful as this film is, it also provides a scary idea of what could be the state of the planet if global warming actually leads to the melting of the polar icecaps…I think. There are no explanations in this film but there is a lot of beauty.

Blessing In Disguise
The rallying call from producers is always, “give me something different.” And by that they usually mean, the same thing as all those other hits but different enough that it seems fresh.

Well, this short film is all that and a bag of chips. Excellent work!

The Forgotten Home of Coffee
Coffee. Most mornings aren’t quite right without it. This documentary tells us a lot about steps being taken to ensure that we, and future generations, continue to be able to drink this beverage.

Nightvision
I love a good timelapse. And this collection of hyperlapses showcase several examples of stellar architecture around European cities. How many have you visited?
