an exercise in reobserving time (2020) by Anahita Amirshahi
This project is a hybrid experimental documentary I created during my first few weeks back home during the beginning of the pandemic, exploring my present headspace and recent memories through diegetic sound and silent captions over footage from both NYC and California.​​​​​​​

I’m a multimedia artist, guerrilla filmmaker, and writer based in Brooklyn, New York. Much of my work is created with little to no crew, and it is mostly personal and centered around my own self-described visceral female experience. I make narrative, experimental, documentary and hybrid short films, and write both screenplays and poetry exploring different facets of my identity and perception.
sheikh ji (2020) by Zakriah Razzak
A personal doc I used as a sandbox to blur the lines between my own story and the story of my immediate predecessors in Pakistan, exploring mixed-ness, converging stories, and the generational trickiness that is navigating and discovering your own sexuality. Framed by a recorded conversation between my mom and brother.​​​​​​​

V and The Day (2020) by Licmi Animations
V and The Day is a 3D animated short film. It was inspired by Langston Hughes and Roy Decarvara and their collaboration of “The Sweet Flypaper of Life”. In my short film animation, I wanted to highlight the leisure life of Black and Brown people. Their works were a huge influence on my film and the surrounding purposes of my film. The story highlights the daily commute of Black and brown people in the 125th subway station in Harlem NYC. The trip involved two characters V and Rodney, where they both meet for the first time on the train. The film is made to uplift moments of connection between two people. As well as To take deep study and appreciation for moments like these. 
3D artist, painter, and creator from New Jersey. I use my voice as an artist to center my conversations around creating art for the Black and Brown community rather than creating art about the Black and Brown community. In doing this the conversation exemplifies our truth.
Journey for Light (2020) by Vinny Sacchetti
I made a storybook-style animation following a fictitious, walking skeleton character on his journey to visit the moon in outer space in order to very literally represent abstract concepts I was struggling with understanding within my life such as space, time, grief, and love.

Diary Of A Teenage Girl - Movie Intro (2020) by Meg Bryant
I made this video for class, and I really loved working on it. I’m not super experienced when it comes to videography, and it was my first time working with after effects. I tried to focus on the idea of youth and coming of age: the mixture between adult and child life when you’re in your mid-teens.

The Man Who Killed God (2019) by Zenzelé Clarke
When a girl learns her boyfriend has murdered God, she is overcome by fascination. A beacon in their dying relationship is found in this unbelievable act of violence. This short film explores themes of power and interpersonal dynamics in romantic relationships.

Philosis (2019) by True
The Greek “philos” means “loving”. The latin “osis” can be translated as “abnormal condition”. In this far too personal hybrid-narrative-doc I look back on my past relationships, being abused and being abusive, and how my schizophrenic brain processes these memories.
True (she/they) @velournewports
Originally from Oklahoma (we don’t talk about that), now I live on a boat between Brooklyn and Queens. I make movies (get in touch if you want the link ((linked above)) to my feature before it hits Prime). Thank you.
