A space time cut through cinema.
What happens in a cinema when you film it at a resolution of 10K with a 360° camera and then reverse the spatial and temporal axes? In a way never before shown, "tx-reverse" shows the collision of reality and cinema and draws its viewers into a vortex in which the familiar order of space and time is suspended.

JNCOS are life.
“A Very Jncos Movie” centers around a day in the life of a group of JNCO Jean-wearing construction workers as they head to work. But after one worker’s arm is accidentally cut off by an electric saw, the rest of the team must unite to try to put him back together. This surreal comedic short explores the concepts of community and safety in the workplace, juxtaposed with the visual hilarity of the ultra wide-legged JNCO Jeans.

Humanity's Wing

Availability ended 12/6/2020 11:59pm EST
They see it. What they need to know could be real.
On the day the prototypes for Trump’s border wall are introduced to the world, the news unsettles the students and teachers who work in the Humanities Wing at the University of Toronto Scarborough. A shaken business major takes photographs of the Humanities Wing to deal with her shock, while others in the building struggle to understand and endure, to create and resist. In the tradition of Chris Marker’s La Jetée, Humanity’s Wing utilizes the business major’s photographs to develop snapshots of these diverse stories in this lyric, immersive, and urgent meditation on the ways in which what we build shapes who we are—and how the rise of divisiveness, destruction, and hate is countered by the need to create, connect, and love.

Because Time

Because time
I am a time traveler, mapping an imaginary universe. Where the self is just a circumstantial representation of the self, hurtling into the future at the rate of one minute per minute. Where the notion of escape implies its desirability. Where the future contains all pasts, even paths not taken – an abysmal present – infinitely fractured into gone and becoming. Where we’re running on a treadmill of dreams, as if we had an option.

Alaska

Availability ended 12/6/2020 11:59pm EST
Alaska is a dreamlike experimental musical made from seven decades of home movies.
Alaska (named after one of the many home movies used in the project) is an autobiography unlike any other. Through the use of intuitive editing, music, image overlays, and public domain cartoons, Alaska demonstrates the complicated, wonderful, and sometimes terrifying force childhood trauma can have on your life. Over the course of 13 original tracks, as well as humorous interstitials, Josh Deane explores moments of freedom, shame, the absurd horror of growing up in an evangelical cult, and the loneliness of losing a sister. Instead of utilizing narrative, Alaska uses dream logic and imagery to create a compelling, and at times overwhelming, emotional experience.
