The Phantom Hijacker: A 2020 NOM Film Sprint Movie
My entry for the 2020 Northampton Open Media 7 Day (and 6 Foot Film Sprint). The rules were easy: make a 2-minute movie in 7 days, use 2 of the 3 random prompts assigned to you, use the universal prompt "Closed," and keep safe social distancing practices. This year, my prompts were a voice on the radio, an asymmetrical shot, and a historical fiction genre. I used each prompt when telling the (very brief) story of a famed air pirate, D.B. Cooper.
Quiet on the Set - Northampton Open Media 7 Day Film Sprint
A short film, made in 7 days that must meet the general requirement of using the word "open," and the randomized requirements of a film technique (black & white), a character (a grifter), and a location (a film set). This year, we only had to use 2 out of 3 of the prompts. I'll let you figure out which ones I went with. Made completely by myself.
Ferris Bueller's Day Off Museum Scene Recreation
I recreated the "Museum Scene" from Ferris Bueller's Day Off for Northampton Community Television's 2018 Crowdsourced Cinema Project. I purposefully chose this scene. I wanted to create something different, so why not hand draw the settings to showcase the art of friends? All of the art on the walls came from various people I know: Nancy Hamilton, Heather Hamilton, Matt Williams, Martin Laird, Matt Handfield, Kara Ly, and Kristen Regan. Full movie can be seen here: https://youtu.be/3VaRANKZsso
The Redemption of Kevin/Kevin Fights a Bunny
My entry into the 2018 Northampton Community Television's Film Sprint. A short film competition where each team must complete a movie that follows randomly assigned criteria. In this instance, my film needed a laboratory, someone waking up from a coma, and my short film needed to actually be two very short films with one being a sequel to the other.
Pensacola Punks (2017)
A documentary introducing the punk scene of Pensacola, FL. This movie is part of a larger historical project. The project has many parts to it. I gathered pictures, show flyers, music, oral histories, fan zines, and other materials to document Pensacola's punk scene through the decades and preserve them at Voices of Pensacola. This film is the result of just one of the many stories that I could follow. For updates on this and any other films on this subject, stay tuned.
