the river, 16mm



i shot this more than a year ago.

recently it became part of the official selection at a french film festival that isn't cannes. rendering the mention of any film-festival-success irrelevant. (i won't allude to the other festival selection in amsterdam then...) and i would loved to have shown you, but enough time has passed for me to view the film objectively (rather than as a child i spent months nurturing). honestly? it's terrible.

you'd be more productive racing raindrops down your window, attempting to make creme caramel, or dancing in your underwear (wait that is always productive).

and yes, that alien is wearing a snuggie®.

edit — it just got into another two film festivals, so if you want to see it, you can here:

festival du film d'altkirch (i have no idea either) 12-14th april
international short film festival of barcelona 18-22nd april

  2. "yes, that alien is wearing a snuggie" needs to be put in the director's commentary

  3. These pictures are waaay too awesome. And the alien photo is a masterpiece. I think I'll just print it and stick it to my wall.
