Nil: No Blood for Coffee

Written by James Turner; Directed by James Turner & Andrew Foerster; Produced by James Turner

The film is a tongue-in-cheek look at the dichotomy between physical and emotional reality through an absurdest flight of fancy. Here the pursuit of a morning coffee turns into a world shattering existential crisis of war and destruction. The seemingly senseless becomes sensible through dream logic.

One Per Person

Written/Directed by Jacquelyn “Jac” Piette & Nasheet Zaman; Produced by Melissa Nemcek & Brian L. Tan “BLT”

Chuck and Nancy are two fast-food employees who compete for customers by handing out free chicken samples. Their vastly different styles of salesmanship results in an amusing duel and an unexpected story of self-discovery. The film is a fresh take on the disappointing first job that many of us had to endure, and how staying positive can turn a dead-end situation into a new lease on life.
