Created by the writer and director Joseph Fifelski, the setting is primarily in a high-tech workshop located inside a barn. “We are playing with a lot of retro 20’s styling right now, lot of really interesting camera effects that should be really cool.”

The game Shepherd of Light is based on the story of the good shepherd in scripture and inspired by the style of the Valve Corporation’s game Portal.

Grey Matters is a story based on the Steven King novel of the same name. It is centered around the idea of when do you stop a friend from hurting themselves. Promising to be a horror thriller, Director Keenan Wostenberg takes a lot of inspiration from movies such as The Shining and IT.
Code Name Leto is an action-packed story about a high school girl’s interactions with her mom. The main character Ardsley is inspired by action, and sees her stay-at-home mom, Kathy, as weak. Through a series of bad choices, it’s revealed that her mom might not be all that it seems. Kathy is a retired assassin who must defend her family from her old team who believed her dead.
Unspoken is a short film that brings awareness to father/son relationships. The film addresses the frustrations of broken communication and deception within these relationships as well as the beauty of when they are overcome. The story follows Kyle Parsons, the 19-year-old son of an ex-boxing champion, as he tries to gather money to pay for his poor father’s lung treatment by participating in underground fights. Writer Andrew Ascough said “My hope for the film is that it inspires young men and their fathers to think about their relationships. It’s going to be gritty, painful, heartfelt, beautiful, and real.”
