Crossing the Line
What goes around comes around. A taste of your own medicine. Two wrongs don't make a right. Junk in the trunk. All of these can be applied to Crossing the Line, in which our main character, perturbed by the rudeness and sloppy parking job of another, sets out to teach a lesson, only to have it backfire with disastrously hilarious results. Armed with few resources, he struggles to free himself from the bed that he has made. Keep this film in mind the next time you think about crossing the line. This film was shot for the Kino Louisville 48 Hour Film Kabaret, October 19-21, 2007. The secret ingredient was "Parking Lot."

la Salle de Jeux
Two tortured souls spend a leisurely afternoon lamenting life, cheese and their mere existence unaware of the imminent danger of their predicament.

This film was shot for the 48HourFilm.com competition, August 6-8, 2010. Each film in the competition had to include a prop (a photo of mom), a line of dialog ("What's that smell?") and a character (Michael or Maggie Charles, Scientist ). In addition, each team picked a film genre from a hat. We originally drew "Silent Film." However, we drew the same genre back in 2006 and didn't want to go that route again. So we traded it in for a "wildcard" genre and drew "Foreign Film."
