Static

As an unassuming man battles the multiple facets of his own personality internally, the struggle turns outward and he engages with his surroundings. With each blow, the fight blurs the lines between which version of him is dominant. Like many battling with mental illness (therefore with themselves) this film aims to manifest that struggle.

Warmth

Whether to fight for survival or to take a chance on an enemy is the tough decision at the core of the CG animated short, Warmth. When a boy alone in the woods faces a tiger, the two realize that they’re not so different. This film, with its minimal setting evokes the cold isolation at the beginning but through its watercolor art direction and small message of empathy will leave audiences a little warmer.

Insulin For All

For this video filmmaker Adam Worth joined Quinn Nystrom, who organized a charter bus to take type 1 diabetics from Minnesota to Canada, where they can purchase insulin at an affordable price - it’s 10 times cheaper there than it is in America. As a type 1 diabetic himself, who was also in need of affordable insulin, Worth decided to bring his camera on the trip. This is his story and the stories of those he travelled with.
