About

DISCORDIA will have short art films that I have released from 2005-2012. Films included are Giri Chit, Mother of the WorldLowcountryInterruptus, Drang 8th Ave and FUD. You can take a look at the links to each film and see where it has screened, even watch and see if you like them.

For the first time, I'll be including a live show on this disc—a live video performance of TIA MAK exclusively on this DVD. If you've never seen TIA MAK live, this is the only way to see it! And if you saw TIA MAK during its tour around the world, here's a brand new version that catches the lighting in a bottle!

New on DVD are ambient works The Long Way Down, Panthalassa, and Exodus of the Urbanites. These are works that have shown in galleries and other non-theatrical venues. I have adapted them to DVD so you can set them up in your own space and create a gallery-like situation for a night, or forever!

Since the artworks themselves are already completed, this Kickstarter project is to fund the pressing and packaging of the DVD compilation. The disc and its package will be gorgeous, you will want to ask it out on a date.

Boy howdy, are there. If we hit $4000, the basic DVD is funded and all systems are go. If we reach $6000, I will extend the packaging to be a larger 8-panel fold-out with stunning premium sleeve. You won't just want to date it, you'll take it to meet your parents.

Now, if we reach $8000, check it out: I will remaster and add in my previous short films from 1996-2004. That means Growing Up Luke, Vow, Joe’s Suspenders, The Cold Sun, Crescent Time, Burning Contour Matrix, Extremely Bright Lights and the Sound of Explosions, and Sundog Verga Matrix. Now, if you know anything about my prior work, then you know that means (dun dun duuuuun)—3D glasses.

If we go beyond that, well, let's just say that there are some ideas but I don't want to jinx them yet...

Risks and challenges

The logistics of arranging and recording the guest commentary tracks are an unknown. I don't know who those backers will be, what they will be like, where they are or what their technical capabilities will be. Imagine a a backer who is a very busy executive, living on a ranch in rural Utah with intermittent broadband access. I'd approach this like one would a podcast with remote hosts. If recording over broadband becomes impossible, we could record over a telephone landline. Or the contributor could write the commentary, and we could record a dramatic perfomance with an actor. All things are possible, and all things can become art...
