Film Experiments

During my film school years I played around with a few different genres and way of making films. This is a selection of the least embarrassing samples.

Director & Editor: Sam Van Zoest

Director of Photography: George McCaffrey

Music: Ordure

Alcohol-infused music video

This music video was an act of rebellion against film school and film conventions. Infusing ourselves with alcohol, I was curious if we could let our instincts guide us to make something remarkable.

Improv comedy

For this film I let the actors improvise their scenes. The setting: two couples; the observers and the observed; and the flip.
