STELLA FOR STAR wins the Hammer to Nail Short Film Contest.

MoMI’s Sloan Science and Film Blog on STELLA FOR STAR


The new short film STELLA FOR STAR is set at a hotel host to both a scientific conference and a group of furries, fans of animal characters who wear full-body costumes. Emmy-nominated actress Robin Weigert (DEADWOOD, BIG LITTLE LIES) stars as Dr. Marcy Later, who has devoted her life to researching nuclear fusion as a […]

MarBelle of Director’s Notes on BITE


You’ve completed three shorts since your debut feature Other Months screened at SXSW 2014. What brought you back to the shorts arena and how do you feel shorts differ from features as a means of expression? The straightforward answer is that I started graduate school after finishing Other Months and I wasn’t able to continue to make features. The […]

Kimi from on BITE


A beautiful short about a girl and a dog by New York-based filmmaker Nick Singer (of Geryon films). While originally conceived as a gory revenge tale involving a father brutally killing a neighbor’s dog after it attacks his daughter, this final version is filled with a series of quiet moments as Singer focuses less on the […]

Mike S. Ryan of Hammer to Nail on OTHER MONTHS


“A three-part journey into a moody post college grad’s head space. Each part represents a different tone and employs a different visual style. Although at times it’s dragged down by a compulsive verbosity, this is an excellent first film in which both character and plot are explored through evocative compositions, lighting, and editing. This is […]

Rating: 8/10″ -Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit

Monday Morning Matinee on OTHER MONTHS


“There’s a naturalism to the direction that makes it all seem real…It’s a noble first effort from Singer, who brings out a solid performance from Bonewitz, who shows a great deal of promise. He takes his role and puts everything he has into it. I was impressed. Rating: 6.8/10” -Will Oliver, Monday Morning Matinee



“One [sequence] in particular stands out, referred to by the film’s composer as ‘a symphony of urban isolation.’ Bonewitz’s bravery here recalls the meltdown Martin Sheen underwent for the opening of Apocalypse Now…The possibilities are practically endless for the exhilaratingly talented [cinematographer] Zweifach.” -David Hudson, Fandor



“This short film, screened with The Sound of Small Things, is a lone wolf story presented in a series of cinematic sketches illustrating a day in the life of a young plumber. Opening with a dark and surreal sex scene, we follow the main character’s search for human connection on the most basic level. Sex […]
