The Real Thing

Sep 2018 | Posted by:

2017 | Directed by Brandon Kelley

The trip home for a Soldier is surreal. Things have changed. The people are older and don’t understand what he’s been through. The scenery is different and sometimes home doesn’t feel like home. For one soldier the ultimate change is in his child. While on his tour of duty, his son has transitioned to be his daughter. He has never met her in person, and today he is coming home to surprise her.

For his daughter, life is full of obstacles and challenges. The people are curious and don’t understand what she’s been through. Her parents’ attitudes are still adjusting, and sometimes home doesn’t feel like home. For Allie, a rough day at school ends with at surprise. Her father is home from the army, and he’s standing in her room.

Parental love is unconditional. It transcends a person’s memory of their child. The Real Thing is an infinitely stronger bond.

2018 | Directed by Olivia Dalfino

This film is about a teenager’s journey through the 5 stages of grief, and how she overcame minor tragedy. The main character’s goal is to reach the final stage; acceptance, and to finally conquer her grievances. The film itself is a metaphor– the depression scene is revolved around a bathtub– which depicts the feeling of drowning, falling, almost being frozen in time.

Winter’s Watch

Sep 2018 | Posted by:

2017 | Directed by Brian Bolster

Located ten miles off the coast of mainland New England, the Oceanic Hotel is the grand, yet far-from-modern home to the thousands of guests who brave the choppy seas to visit during the warmer spring and summer months. Off-season, the hotel and the 43-acre Star Island on which it sits is home to Alexandra de Steiguer – its winter caretaker who braves the colder, darker months of inclement weather by embracing the solitude and finding inspiration, and life, in what would otherwise be considered the ‘bones’ of winter.
