Film Information

Without Name

Land surveyor Eric, alienated from urban existence and those who love him, travels to a remote and unnamed Irish woodland to assess its suitability for a dubious development project. Intangible elements are at play in this ethereal environment. The place seems to be imbued by an intelligence of sorts. A silhouette flits between trees. The place fascinates the fragmenting Eric as much as it disturbs him. Following in the psychonautic footsteps of the mysterious Devoy, Eric attempts to communicate with his surroundings, but risks becoming a prisoner of a place Without Name.

Film Information

Feeding Time

Upon getting a text from her friend Melanie, Sasha (Stacy Snyder) agrees to fill in for her on a babysitting job. After meeting the eccentric parents of the infant (Graham Skipper and Najarra Townsend), Sasha settles in for the night in the enormous, old craftsman house. At first distracted by her millennial infatuation with her phone (and boyfriend), Sasha is soon drawn into an ever-escalating series of clues that something might not be right with this babysitting situation.  When she decides to explore the old dark house and check on the baby, it's worse than she imagined- she's in mortal danger.
