  • Mediocrity, For Micah Dahl Anderson (who is amazing and not mediocre)

    Directed by Drew Danburry
    Mediocrity, For Micah Dahl Anderson

    A hand drawn animated music video by Drew Danburry that's perhaps a bit weird and maybe even experimental.

  • Dreamland

    Directed by Max Rothman

    A man becomes entwined in a battle between light and dark. A dance performance based on a poem by Lewis Carroll. Performance by Paul Vickers Music by Rob Northcott Narration by Carol Hendrickson

  • Permission

    Directed by Kaye Tuckerman

    This current climate presents a new awakening in the acceptance of sexual harassment and abuse allegations in the home, arts, media and politics. Choreographer Ari Groover, wanted to explore the long term effects of this abuse on both women and men, victim and perpetrator, and that culture that allows powerful individuals to abuse that power sexually, and remain unaccountable. In this story guilt plays an important part, especially when this guilt attacks the abusers conscience, and holds the individual accountable for their own actions.

  • Rooftops

    Directed by Odeya Rush

    Rooftops is a story about a boy in love.

  • FOOL

    Directed by Scott J. Ramsey

    Inspired by Greek mythology, "FOOL" is a surreal fantasy horror short film set to a song from the score for the independent feature-length movie "X".

  • 140 Characters

    Directed by Dean WInkler, Maureen Nappi & Donald S. Butler
    140 Characters

    The world we're living in is not the one we were promised. Why did we get Twitter instead of intelligent media that enhances society? Why are we developing apps instead of hardware? All enabled by our so-called 'smart phones' which trap us like the prisoners in Plato's cave -- detached from reality and unaware. We used this as a basis for creating abstract imagery, referencing everything from Aboriginal art to 1940s/1950s television to EDM/Rave culture. Perhaps described as psychedelic, synthenesia, visual music -- our goal is to allow viewers to derive their own meaning from our premise as they travel through the flow of images.

  • Loose Lips

    Directed by Sean Kirkland
    Loose Lips

    A hip hop music video telling the classic story of a warlock rapper and his siren girlfriend as they invade the mind of a young boy and force him to rap.

  • Glendale

    Directed by Sean Wehrli

    A portrait of Detroit and the passion its people share.
