  • 2018 The Flats (B&W, 5:00)
    Three lone individuals try to coexist in cramped housing conditions. How will their unique quirks get in the way of just surviving? A stylized short film that mixes live action and animation to examine the human condition. Distributed by Videopool (http://www.videopool.org)
  • 2017 Ilsa the far seer (B&W and Colour, 10:41) A schoolgirl from the sticks makes her way to the city of the future: 1920's Weimar Berlin! Her love of new technologies leads her to find a job in the burgeoning television business where she meets strange and unique personalities and learns to triumph over the petty authoritarians in her way. Ilsa the Far Seer is a highly stylized retrofuturist alternative history that seeks to recall the manic energy and unbridled creativity of classic expressionist cinema.
  • 2015 The First Engine (B&W, 6:33) At the dawn of the 20th century the horse was supplanted by a new means of power. This new invention is making itself known across the prairies of North America. Soon it will make it's presence felt in a most radical way. Distributed by the Winnipeg Film Group (https://www.winnipegfilmgroup.com)
  • 2012 The Floating World (B&W, 8:32) Experimental short film. A man emerges from a heavily forested area of northern Saskatchewan to discover that all the people in his home town have disappeared. In their place stands a series of massive devices of unknown origin or purpose. Without fuel or food he wanders aimlessly across the landscape trying to divine what meaning can be made in a world without people.
