Experimental cinema demands the audience be actively engaged rather than passive. It is a portal into worlds of experience beyond traditional storytelling film structure.

I am an independent filmmaker, artist, composer for film, and performing musical artist based out of Atlanta.

My films (experimental/avant-garde and documentary) are in the Film section. The posters below link to the films but don't include my ongoing Thinklematter art shorts, which are on he filmography page, or my commercial work. All posters are designed by me and feature my art.

Pitfall Catalytic Collision Cinematic Notebook
Tree People Spiral Movie Weightless Bird in a Falling Cage
Madhouse Mitchel Velocity into Execution Leftovers

Samples of my commercial film work can be found in the For Hire section, along with work skills and history.

For films, I needed music. For the majority of my work, I compose my own soundscapes, some of which may be found in the Music section. I also record other music and have ventured recently into live synth performance.

I'm also an artist, with work in surrealist gallery shows and publications. I have several zines in print and webcomics online. The zines and webcomics section has information on these. More art is in the Art section and on Instagram.

I am a co-host on the cinema podcast Talk Cinephilia to Me. Follow the podcast on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The best experience will be on Facebook for show notes and information.

My contact email and all social media information can be found under connect.

On this website, we've stayed old school html as we were weary of battling Wordpress hacks and we like the look. It works well if you just swipe to enlarge on a phone, but is built for optimal viewing on a larger screen.

Feeco Magazine Volume 3: Doomsday Issue Interview

These are photos I got with the arrival of my copies of the newest volume of Feeco magazine, Volume 3: Doomsday Issue.

I had an in-depth interview with the magazine's curator, Yu Hirayama, back in 2020 where we discussed the current political climate along with the ideologies and subcultural interests in my art, music and filmography. My copies arrived with one of the limited edition physical prints of the compilation CD Philosophy Of Poisonous Porcupine (which I contributed a song for) and a copy of the previous volume of Feeco, which Hirayama generously included. All of these were published under his label Suikazura. The front cover is the painting of the grandfather that appears in my short film Box Men, which is discussed in regards to its uncanny foreshadowing of life under lockdown with the pandemic. Other topics of discussion range from Hiroshi Harada's animations to industrial and noise music (The Gerogerigegege, S.P.K., etc), the Tokyo Grand Guignol, the films of Showa-era Japan and the varying textures between analog and digital mediums. Of interest to some of my friends on here, volume 2 features an interview with J.G. Thirlwell, who had outside of his solo career as Foetus and extensive work in soundtracks (including writing the music for the feature-length adaption of J.G. Ballard's The Atrocity Exhibition) also done work with Coil on their Scatology and Horse Rotorvator-era material, Einst├╝rzende Neubauten, Swans and the iconic industrial sound collage act Nurse With Wound (whom Hirayama also wrote a book about).
