I absolutely adore monologues so I was really interested to see how they’d visually capture the essence of the character’s thoughts. The film began and I felt hooked immediately. The writing is of such a high standard, with a few little comedy pieces thrown in […]

BEYOND is a fun short film directed by Jeremy Haccoun about a family trip gone awry when a rockslide traps a family of three inside their car out in the desert. It’s a simple enough set up for this roughly 10 minute ride. Haccoun does a great job of taking a simple concept and executing it […]

Tableau toggles back and forth between JT's daily awkwardness and his grand and at times pretentious cinematic vision. Tableau explores the space of creative thought and ideas of domestic vs wildness.
