There is someone who holds me to contemplations in every moment of my repetitive daily life. I put reins and shackles upon myself, standing before His love through pain. I strive today as well, to know Him as I fight myself off in the extension of similar situations and experiences I have been in for the past 38 years of my life. The belief that true freedom of soul and genuine comfort which cannot be replaced with anything could be enjoyed, in the end of the pain that comes from thrusting myself upon the bottom ground! At this very moment with this opportunity, I am full of agony as I ask questions and answer them. Agony becomes sheer delight with the word Amen.

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.

Upon returning to Nashville, Tennessee after spending the summer in northern Florida, Eli Hayes, still in the grips of depression, sunk into the isolation of his apartment and continued to close himself off from the world. Nearing a state of agoraphobia, Hayes once again turned to his camera, and the act of capturing images, as a therapeutic means of reengaging with his surroundings. “Static After Summer” is a slow landscape film in two parts, examining the textures of nearby environments through gradual expressions of light, color, movement, and sound. The images presented are illustrative of the eye, while the audio presented is illustrative of the mind: somber synths, and periodic noise from the external world attempting to force its way through Hayes’ emotional shell via the path of memory. The result is a dissonance between what is seen and what is felt, in an attempt to capture the inharmoniousness of the world’s beauty and the pain of unhappiness.

An experimental documental essay, Teddy Roosevelt and Fracking explores the beauty and fragility of the North Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana landscapes, contrasting the vastness and stark loneliness of the relatively untouched wild areas with the terrible beauty of the oil derricks, fracking towers, natural gas burn offs, coal mines, machinery, trucks, energy installations, and energy towns -- visual evidence of the recent boom and bust economy that echoes the cattle boom and bust of the 1880's. Teddy’s writings about the landscape and conservation combine with our images, and all this is accompanied by a kind of musical score composed and layered from natural and found sounds, e.g., a song of mourning for the death of Teddy's young wife using mourning doves, meadowlarks, wind, and water; or a song of terrible beauty for the modern day fracking footage, using heavy equipment, machinery creaking in the heat, clanking security gates, and methane flame burn off.
