Our latest film "Two's a Crowd" premiered at Hot Docs in 2011, and earned several awards, including the Audience Award for Best Short Film at the 2011 Hamptons International Film Festival. It's a comedic short doc about romance, rent control and two classic New Yorkers who challenge our assumptions about love and marriage. The film follows Allen and Collette, who are forced to move in with each other for economic reasons after having lived in separate apartments 20 blocks from each other during the first four years of their marriage.
"Once More to the Cabin" premiered on PBS in Maine and New Hampshire in 2010. The film is a personal documentary about a 93-year-old widow returning to the place where she fell in love for the first time since the death of her husband.
"Critical Hours," a documentary television pilot about innovative educational programs, produced by Jim Isler, Tom Isler and Thomas Kail, was selected as one of three finalists for the MSN Artistic Achievement Award at the 2006 New York Television Festival and was nominated for a KIDS FIRST! 2007 Best Award.
