Mixed-Tape Shorts

"I'm Coming Over"

In an eccentric mountain town, a borderline neo-Luddite struggles to maintain and share a fragile state of enlightenment

"The Black Balloon"

While trying to move 40 kids six New York City blocks all by himself, a stressed man accidentally loses a bouquet of a hundred balloons. In that bouquet, a lone black balloon scurries free from the rest. It dies and comes back to life, returning to the city, cruising for a companion. On its beat, it learns that humans are complicated creatures with extreme highs and lows, but full of life nonetheless. A film intended to be for children that turned into a sci-fi urban fable, this is the story of The Black Balloon

"Cork's Cattlebaron"

A young protege and his boss sit down for the most epic steak dinner of their lives in Omaha, Nebraska.


A young couple meet on the day before the final space shuttle launch in the town that lives in its shadow.

"The Death of Toys"

Ten year-old Seth wants to give up his toys, but his work-numbed mother Lily needs the spark of their playtime more than he does. Her insistence that he keep the toys leads to some unexpected places.


Gwen is the spokesperson for a radical technology allowing people to overcome their natural disadvantages and begin life anew. But when her job and family are in crisis, will she undergo the procedure herself?
