Here’s what the project’s about: Ben is a
“Sleepwalker” – a secret alternate personality
that takes over every night when his “Awake” self goes to sleep. Whereas
“Awake Ben” is resigned to a life of monotony, “Asleep Ben” is
determined to make the most of every night with his other “Sleepwalker”
friends. But the lives of both Bens become complicated when Sleeping Ben
falls for Allison, an “Awake” waitress at an all night diner, and the
lines between their two worlds – previously so distinct – begin to blur.


Here’s what the project’s about: Indivisible
is about the real people at the heart of our nation’s immigration
debate. The film’s main characters were small children when their
parents brought them to the United States in search of a better life;
they were teenagers when their mothers, fathers, and siblings were
deported. Today, they are known as Dreamers—immigrants who grew up and
live in the United States without documentation. Indivisible takes place
at a pivotal moment in their lives, as they fight for a pathway to
citizenship and a chance to reunite with their loved ones.

“Sons of Guns”

Here’s what the project’s aboutSons of Guns is
a ridiculous short film that takes a turn for the insane when a crazed
gun collector shows up. There is a crazy twist at the end but if we tell
you we’d have to kill you.

“Two 4 One”

Here’s what the project’s about: Adam gets a frantic call from his psycho ex.
She wants moral support while she inseminates with donor sperm—but she
gets a lot more. We discover Adam is transgendered while at a
consultation for phalloplasty where he discovers he’s accidently
pregnant. But Adam is becoming a man and men don’t get pregnant. So
obviously he’ll get rid of it. But just as he’s about to, Miriam
miscarries. She can’t have a baby. Adam is holding her only hope at
family. So, Adam reconsiders and realizes that to become the man he’d
always dreamed of being, he’ll first give birth.


Here’s what the project’s about: “MA” is a modern day silent film about a virgin mother on a pilgrimage to Las Vegas to give birth to our savior. More here.
