Kate is a perfect wife with a problem. After twenty five years her husband, Ralph, has left her for a newer model. She reaches out to her friend from the past, Vanessa. Vanessa, a 40-a-day force of nature with a drink problem, is everything that Kate isn’t – mouthy, impulsive and chaotic. She has a quick fix for Kate’s despair – vodka, grass and a road trip – and persuades Kate to take Ralph’s beloved classic Mercedes convertible. It’s a bumpy ride that turns Kate’s life around when she discovers what drives Vanessa’s lust for life.

The Long Drum

In a small village, Thanh’s family has passed the sacred shaman’s drumming tradition from generation to generation. When Thanh’s only son dies, Thanh immediately begins searching for a new shaman to play the burial chant for his son. He must find a new candidate by sundown, or his son’s soul will forever be stuck in purgatory. He goes from person to person and each has a different reason for refusing his offer. When he finally runs out of candidates just before sundown, Thanh realizes he must face his grief before he can pass on the sacred tradition. “The Long Drum” is a story about loss and about tradition, where one man’s sorrow meets his sacred duty to keep his cultural practice alive.

Some Things Mean Something 

A man with learning difficulties believes a poem in a greeting card holds a secret coded message he must decipher.

 

 

The Jigsaw

The Jigsaw Short Film was inspired by an old ghost story that sent a chill through our spines when we just small boys. No one truly knows where the original story comes from but we knew that this story was well deserved of the big screen. “After weeks of writing and honing the idea, we had adapted the story and came up with a screenplay that we felt did justice to the spirit of that story that we knew and loved. We are proud to share that story through the magic of motion picture and hope that it gives the audience the same thrilling feeling that we enjoyed so many years ago.”
