In this sci-fi thriller examining the ramifications of humans playing God, a team of scientists inhabits an island compound working to develop Mariposa, a drug designed to improve a woman’s beauty and amplify her intelligence. The remarkable gains achieved are short-lived, however, and the test subjects revert to savage, animalistic behavior, viciously killing many of the people working on the island. Before learning of the regression in the test subjects, Dr. Judith Nelson injects herself with an enhanced version of Mariposa–essentially a super serum that introduces transformative traits much more rapidly. Without knowing of her self-experimentation, three other remaining scientists and one security guard barricade themselves in the same laboratory with Judith to withstand their creation until help can arrive. As they learn of Judith’s secret, the small group must wrestle with their conscience to ensure survival from both the threat outside the lab and from within, a moral dilemma that will ultimately decide their fate.

Directed by Eric S. Anderson; Produced & Written by Zoe Taylor

Everything and everyone in this world is broken–even time. What starts as a rather whimsical and Mad Hatter-esque story about a watchmaker who has no concept of time, slowly grows darker and more disturbing with each scene, descending through the looking glass to a place where characters transform and harden.

Oliver and John are two lonely survivors in a decayed frontier, drawn inexorably together by a web of shattering family secrets. When the watchmaker fashions a bizarre weapon for John, it opens a surrealistic Pandora’s Box, engulfing everyone in a fever dream with no clear exit.

Robert Scott Crane and Christopher Sweeney star in this hallucinogenic fable by EMMY winning Director Eric S. Anderson, Academy Award winning DP David Stump A.S.C., and writer Zoe Taylor.

On the way to his best friend’s wedding ceremony, Sherwin, a young scientist, loses the most important item of the day: the bride’s ring. After retracing his steps, and searching to no avail, he decides to ‘slip’ back through time via a modified elevator in his apartment building. Now existing 90 minutes earlier, Sherwin steals the ring from his previous self and attempts to deliver it safely to the wedding venue without his past self noticing. This game of hide-and-seek unfolds across New York City as over and over he fails to reach the ceremony before his original self. And, each time he jumps back in time, he creates another version of himself he must now hide from. Finally, after foregoing trains and taxis, he sprints across the East River and barely makes it in time. Sherwin leaves the ring in a bathroom where he knows his past self visits. But, as his previous self picks up the ring, Sherwin and the ring cease to exist, and an infinite loop paradox begins. Without the ring, the past version of Sherwin retraces his steps, searches to no avail, and decides to ‘slip’ back through his time machine. And this continues. Over and over and over. For each time Sherwin delivers the ring to his past self, he negates the very reason he time traveled in the first place. With no way out, Sherwin breaks the cardinal rule of time travel and confronts his past self face-to-face.

After the accidental murder of his own parents, Sock, a genuinely sweet but somewhat unstable teen who struggles with homicidal tendencies, decides that his only way out is to commit suicide. Upon arrival in Hell he is not met with eternal torture and suffering, but with Mephistopheles, the amicable manager of the underworld, who instead makes him a job offer: Sock is to become a demon, charged with the task of haunting humans indefinitely in the hope of ultimately driving them to suicide. At first this seems like Sock’s dream job—a way he can finally act on his darker desires and have them be met with reward rather than consequence—but after meeting his first target, a disinterested, lonely, and apathetic highschooler named Jonathan, he finds that the job is not as easy as he’d hoped it would be. Sock’s unfortunately friendly demeanor proves to be a detriment, and as he attempts to haunt the unwavering Jonathan, he finds himself with another desire that just might be stronger… and just might have a consequence.
