A Family Journey
A family's journey in McMinnville, Oregon. The footage was captured by the Executive Director of McMinnville Community Media while he was heading to work one morning.
Four Daughters
The father of the bride, having left the wedding reception, finds himself in an adjacent tavern. There he reveals certain regrets he has to one of his daughters.
Coping with the death of a loved one is difficult, but denying it is dangerous. Wake is a powerful and symbolic short film that deals with death and the process of acceptance.
The Plumber
The day-in-the-life adventures of intergalactic plumber Buck Mooncrater, as he travels to the seedier side of space to fix a mysterious clog in a wretched nightclub lavatory. Strange things abound as the plumber plunges in action to root out the source of the problem!
Shanghai Faders
One man's unfortunate trip through the mysterious past of a condemned building in old-town Portland.
The Kenton Lead Blob
When a small neighborhood has reason to believe that there's lead contamination in their community, one filmmaker rallies his neighbors to track down the cause.
Sac de Merde
An unlucky-in-love yet irrationally optimistic New Yorker thinks her luck has changed when she spends the night with the man of her dreams. As it turns out, he might just be full of crap. Literally.
We Were There
Today is Nahal’s birthday. Her friends have gathered to throw her a surprise party and are faced with an unexpected event. How will they react to their newfound knowledge that surpasses their ethical boundaries?
