Me looking at you looking at me looking at you - 2012, color, silent, 3 minutes
A portrait film of Ann painting a portrait of me, at her summer house in Maine, 2012. Peter was also there painting next to to us on the floor, all in the sunroom, listening to Joni Mitchell's Blue album.
Steven's January 5, 2005 - 2005, b&w and color, silent, 6 minutes
Days after our good friend dies, Chuck calls me and tells me I have to come in and film the studio before people start getting in and ripping it apart. It is totally untouched at that point -- left exactly as Steven had it that morning of New Years Eve 2004. His 'pain chocolat' still on his desk. His artwork, art of his friends, his bike, his music, the things he kept around him. Plus me, Chuck and Olivier are there those days so sad -- grieving and in shock.
Hospital Records - 2008, b&w, silent, 3 minutes
Matt and I decided to blindfold and surprise Rich and take him to this great record store he'd never been to before and we thought he'd like. It's in a basement and the film gets pretty dark at the end. I don't believe the record store is there anymore -- Hospital Records.
Moonshadow Part 1 - 2007, b&w, silent, 6 minutes
Ann and Jake rescued and fostered a litter of kittens that were born on Ann's Harlem fire escape winter of 2007/8. Between the administering of eye drops, antibiotics, finding homes for them, and etc -- Ann tries to prepare a shipment of Moon paintings for an upcoming show at the FRAC. We also screened this film outside at sunset at that opening.
