    La Chambre


    Structural filmmaking that expands on, rather than excludes, the visual properties of the medium. It consists of circular panoramic shots in which the camera slowly pans an entire residential space with slightly differing results.

  • Ember



    A spiritual x-ray of the human condition and the abundant emotions and feelings that go along with it.

    Both economical and expansive, this immensely rewarding lyrical-theoretical exercise aims to reflect on the ever-changing natural landscape and its relationship with industry and technology. As aesthetically sound as it is, it's Hutton's ideological framework that affords the work its importance and raison d'etre. Hutton deconstructs the voyage depicted in a silent to ponder the greater implications of modernity, including its ecological footprints.

    Wiseman's remarkable sense of place in this beautiful old New England port city movingly contrasts with what are often troubled lives of those who live here. Yet those lives truly make their presence felt when they are seen as part of a community - a living, breathing organism.
