Curio Shop : A Post Apocalyptic Acid Western

Directed by Eric S. Anderson; Produced & Written by Zoe Taylor

Directed by Eric S. Anderson; Produced & Written by Zoe Taylor

Everything and everyone in this world is broken–even time. What starts as a rather whimsical and Mad Hatter-esque story about a watchmaker who has no concept of time, slowly grows darker and more disturbing with each scene, descending through the looking glass to a place where characters transform and harden.

Oliver and John are two lonely survivors in a decayed frontier, drawn inexorably together by a web of shattering family secrets. When the watchmaker fashions a bizarre weapon for John, it opens a surrealistic Pandora’s Box, engulfing everyone in a fever dream with no clear exit.

Robert Scott Crane and Christopher Sweeney star in this hallucinogenic fable by EMMY winning Director Eric S. Anderson, Academy Award winning DP David Stump A.S.C., and writer Zoe Taylor.

Monkey Rag

Directed by Joanna Davidovich

Directed by Joanna Davidovich

‘Monkey Rag’ is a traditionally animated throwback to the musical cartoons of yore. Inspired by the thumping, riotously fun music of the Asylum Street Spankers, Mitzi pursues a disaster of her own making in this richly colored world where reason is overrated. Mitzi may be barking up the wrong tree, but she also knows that when it comes to love, sometimes you just gotta give a little bit of what you got.
