    "United" is a piece of work that takes a controlled look at love and chance, from the knees down. At this angle, personalities are expressed solely through dance and fashion vernaculars. In "United", our shy hero (listed as "sneakers") strikes out in the world of women often until a chance encounter with our heroine (listed as "untied shoes"). In an unexpected romance we see a guy who is always in control wrestle physically and emotionally with a girl who has no rules. By chance also, the heroine leaves our hero's life just as quickly as she enters it. "United" is written, directed and produced by Jesse Schoem, produced and choreographed by Jamie Benson.

  • Valley Film Fest - The Octo Circus

    This little film is a spoof on society. It's jam-packed with props and gags. Just when you think you've heard and seen everything something extraordinary comes along. In difficult times, people need a good laugh and sometimes need to laugh at themselves. Clowns are people too. Look around you. They may not be wearing make-up but they're there in hospitals, on reality TV, sitting next to you on the bus and in traffic. HONK! HONK! We're all clowns and the whole world's our stage. Smile. : )
