Shot over ten days in France, Julien & Claire is a lush, music-driven mood piece that examines the romance between a young American dancer and a struggling French musician after their chance encounter on the streets of Paris.
Nicole Bernard II,
A stoned father talks about kids, bullies and the grim state of affairs our children face in the "real world". This short film portrays a remarkably simplified observation by a young, ambitious father and his emotionally deprived wife.

A fish-out-of-water romantic comedy. Meg Daniels, a girl who comes from very little in Queens, NY makes it into Cambridge Business school and comes up with the most unusual and clever way to pay for her tuition.
A very entertaining allegory told from the perspective of a bicycle. Beautifully executed without any fat or indulgences you see a lot in short films, the theme of rebirth is there from the beginning and explored in a sophisticated way, especially considering when we are comically following the life, death and rebirth of a bicycle. I can't imagine it's easy to tell an engaging story when the main character is an inanimate object with humans in the background, but it's done to great effect here. The voice over, the voice of the bicycle, drives the story forward with eloquence and humor. Choosing a British voice over artist was definitely a funny choice, as the formality of it adds a nice juxtaposition to the sometimes unceremonious events that happen to the bicycle. This, along with the cinematography definitely create a world that's fun to occupy for eight minutes. Good job!
