Election Night | Directed by Tessa Blake  | 11 min. Short Film | USA, 2014. 

Starring Peri Gilpin (Frasier) and comedian Jake Johannsen, ELECTION NIGHT follows a politician’s family in Maine as they wait for the final 350 votes to come in on election eve - will the speech be a celebration or a concession? Trapped in a kitchen and waiting for the ferry to arrive with the last ballots, nerves rattle the family into a comic whirlwind of wild theories, long-held secrets, and a revelation that nobody saw coming. 

The Last Girl | Directed by Brian Gottlieb | 13 min. Denmark, 2015. 

He does love her, in a way. He can see that she’s beautiful when she’s lying naked next to him, it just isn’t love. He knows that now. The holiday with Jesper changed everything and he doesn’t want to leave the car. He wants to kiss him, because apparently falling in love can be easy. It just wasn’t with her. Despite countless efforts to uncover those feelings with her, when she kissed his neck or when she looked in his eyes, he just couldn’t. She isn’t right for him, because Jesper is right for him. He is the one who gives him butterflies and makes him smile, and as he goes home to her, he knows that he has already chosen. ”The Last Girl” is a story about how ”coming out” means letting go of what love is expected to be, in order to set yourself free. A story of a young man’s realization that he has met his last girl and that choosing to follow his heart is the only right thing to do now.
