Reuben- Reuben is about the unconditional love of a person with autism to his father who fell into depression after the death of his wife. A non-dialogue short film, which is expressed solely through visual story telling and symbolism.

In the Beginning Was Water and Sky-A haunting and visually stunning fairytale that blends fantasy and real life events. Two Native American children navigate the dark corners of American history trying to find their way back to a home that may be lost forever. 

La Clave- Our film, set in Southern California, is based on the fictional story of Adriana, a young mother dealing with the aftermath of her divorce. It portrays Adriana_Ñés daily struggles and emotional turmoil as she begins to develop symptoms of a serious mental illness. As her problems progress, her small son and parents grapple with understanding what she is experiencing and how to best help Adriana.

The film is designed to generate conversations in the Latino community as part of a broader project to help people become more aware of the symptoms and treatments of serious mental illness and the importance of getting help promptly. The project also includes broad multimedia strategies and community outreach.

A Good Man- A GOOD MAN is a story about doing the right thing and suffering the consequences.

On his way home from work, Hector intervenes during a mugging and is beaten into a coma. Detective Valdez intends to solve the crime using a memory imager, a machine that records and plays back memories like a DVD. Reality and memory are blurred when Hector recalls the mugging and Valdez must figure out what really happened.

The Bus Ride (Ruel Smith)- Inspired by a true story, The Bus Ride chronicles a young man's jarring moment of reflection. Chad, homeless and down on his luck crosses paths with an elderly woman at a bus stop. The encounter changes his life forever when he decides to tag along on what becomes her last bus ride through the city. 'The Bus Ride' is a cascading paradigm of small deeds leading to an unknowingly larger act of kindness.

Neighbor-A homeless man witness a kidnapping, and when he hunts down the perpetrator he uncovers a dirty  secret in suburbia.
