Experimental film & animation on the road from Los Angeles

'Burning Bungalows' brings new and unseen experimental film from Los Angeles on the road this coming April.  With a handmade mix of animation and live action on video, super 8, 16mm and 35mm slides we're covering all the bases for an eclectic hour and 20 minutes.  The films tend toward an ethereal conjuring of spirits with a dystopian punk attitude.

Vulgarians 1, 2, 3
16mm, 2012-2014, 7min
This science fiction project focuses on communication, perspective, and the future of mass media and advertising.  On a fractured Earth in the near future, our social etiquette will adapt to primitive ways of representation: masks and tin cans replacing social media, technology, and cell phones.

Cat In the Lighthouse (working title)
hand processed 16mm, 2014, 5min
Combining miniatures, stop motion animation, puppetry, and the filmmaker's pet cat "Boo", this short fable explores the wordless bond between a lonely fisherman and the cat that saves his life. Accompanied by a live soundtrack.

Waxing and Milking
super 8, 2014, 9min 30sec
A companion piece to Boys of Summer, 2009, Waxing and Milking mimics music video tropes and equates Los Angeles' favorite food snack, the taco, to a lady's special parts.

Them Oracles
16mm, 2012, 7min 30sec
Them Oracles is a skeptic investigation of what an oracle can be and what it would sound like.  Human desire and blind faith allow, and maybe even will these mystic soothsayers to exist.

The Temptation of St.Anthony
