Look Up in the Sky

Directed by Arthur Rains-McNally

Runtime 2 minutes

In the Fall of 2004, a high school Science class hiking trip to Mt. Rainier brings excitement and spontaneity of Senior Year. However, a professor's secret and an almost missed discovery changes each student on the trip. One of them disappears. It's 2014 when they are forced to reunite one by one to find out what happened and try to stop whoever's trying to kill them before it's too late.




Funeral Dance

Directed by Mick Flaaen

Runtime 82 minutes

An inner-city non-profit dance company prepares it's piece entitled 'The Funeral' for it’s opening night. Along the way the dancers face challenges as they work the piece choreographed by Artistic Director Kate Monthy. The young dance troupe composed of all young women in Tacoma Washington face the pressures of their daily lives and the demands of adapting such a dark piece. As the weeks of rehearsal pass the tension grows as members quit and change roles within the piece. Meanwhile the director is facing her own inner dilemma as her day job with the Spectrum Dance Theatre (Seattle, WA) prepares for it's opening. Mixed with music and interviews, the documentary moves between the lives of the dancers and their director. The camera follows them to their day jobs and home lives. As we move closer to the opening, the girls get closer and bond with the piece and each other. The climax comes as the camera catches all the excitement of backstage and opening night. Afterwards, in an emotional interview with Kate Monthy we learn that this in fact this was the last piece for this company as the director tells of all of her disenchantment with the attitudes and professionalism of her company. The Funeral really does become “a funeral” as the company ceases to live beyond this last performance.
