Geoffrey Sexton
Monk (2013)
4 minutes, video.
The motion of wave surfaces manifest over murky marine layers as several miniature, aquatic experiments pulsate and overlay. These phosphorescent, visual gestures to the music result in forming a living, breathing entity.

Geoffrey Sexton
Whitetrees (2013)
9.5 minutes, video.
As a melded series of paintings, stenciled sumi brush drawings, distinctive landscapes seen from 20,000 feet, paper cutouts and crafted debris—Whitetrees is a film that illuminates at the rate of a firefly’s pulsation.

Tempe Hale
Pick Up the Stick (2014)
19.5 minutes, HD.
A documentary short inspired by footage shot on a road trip in which the filmmaker’s brother suffers a mental breakdown. The film is a mix of original road trip footage, interviews and improvisation.

Walter Vargas

Full House sans the cast (2014)
25 minutes, 2x16mm & video, live performance.
Reexamination of a house and what is home. Uncles included.
