Update: 01-2016. I’ve ended my attempts to get New Life into festivals (so expensive after awhile!), so now I can share it in entirety on the internet!
Update: 05-2015. New Life has been accepted into two film festivals!!!! The Athens International Film and Video Festival in Athens, Ohio; and the Independent Filmmakers Showcase (IFS) in Beverly Hills, California! Check their sites out for information on showtimes.

“New Life” is a short silent film based in the style of 1930s newsreels which depicts a felt laboratory attempting to make purely artificial life. A commentary on colonialism wrapped in the adorable guise of felt safety goggles and felt microbes, New Life also sports a Martin Denny-esque score by my one-man exotica band Cheese From Denny’s.
