A cautionary tale of repressed tensions in small town America, Beware of Floyd the Barber is based on footage from the classic TV program The Andy Griffith Show, and inspired by Hitchcock and the Nirvana song Floyd the Barber. Set in small town America, The Andy Griffith Show featured an eccentric group of likable characters, and evoked nostalgia for an idealized simpler time.

I've been working hard on new films that will be included in my first feature Antarctica. Each of these short films hopefully will be shown in film festivals and micro-cinemas while the feature is being developed. Projected date for the feature is 2019 or 2020.

Little Jean-Pierre Leaud from 400 Blows is still running.  Only the frames of film that contained him have been hollowed and scratched. He is still running to escape a damaged past, but the damage has multiplied and exploded into a post apocalyptic dystopia. He is no longer running to an ocean he has never seen, but to the only hospitable location left. The melting continent of Antarctica.

Antarctica is the first chapter in what will become a feature length experimental film. Each chapter will be self contained, but together they will create an epic journey across erased and scratched frames of cinematic history.

A meditation on politics and the political beast formed by footage of the first nationally televised debate. The debate is known for displaying their differences through the power of appearances, but news accounts also claim they presented remarkably similar agendas. They both emphasized national security, the threat of communism, the need to strengthen the U.S. military, and the importance of building a brighter future for America.

Tall Trees, a film about a 1914 bank robbery in Sedro-Wooley, Washington will have its European/ French premiere at Festival Images Contre Nature in Marseille. Nine photos from a scrapbook my father kept about his father Emrys Hughes, pictured with the gun tell the story of the fate of the robbers.

Experiments in Cinema turns 10 this year, and it seems that Bryan Konefsky has had his hands tattooed for the event with pause and play buttons. This gives you an idea of his dedication to the festival, and filmmaking in general. My film LUCKY will be in the opening day line up, and I couldn't be happier. There's a great list of films and filmmakers spread out for the whole week of festivities.
