ILLNESS MAGNIFIED - watch online

Super 16mm and HD video | 17 min | 2011
Producer, Director, DP, Editor, Sound Designer/Editor

Illness Magnified is an experimental documentary about the experience, language, and spaces of illness from the perspective of both patients and physicians. It contrasts personal and institutional conceptions of illness and the body by exploring how they are visualized, documented, and described.  Using voiceover interviews, medical imagery, and handmade recreations of the internal body, the film addresses the complexity of these representations and unveils the often unacknowledged lived experience of the patient as well as the emotional experience of the physician.

Online Interactive Narrative | 2014
Directed by Lisa Marie Patzer

a.k.a. Profile Glitch is an interactive online narrative about three characters, Marty, Maeve and Johanna, who meet at Harmony Village, an intentional community located outside of Ithaca, New York. The unique emotional and physical dynamics of communal life, with its own constructed social norms and rules of conduct, creates an intense interpersonal experience. Marty, Maeve, and Johanna develop a deep, unlikely friendship that would not have been possible if it weren’t for the commune. After several months, Marty, Maeve, and Johanna each decide to return home and the dynamic of their relationship is altered. Marty begins blogging about her experiences at Harmony Village and in the process reveals information about Johanna and Maeve that they are not comfortable with. Maeve and Johanna confront Marty through a series of online conversations. The conflict between the characters highlights issues of self-identity and self-representation in different social contexts and how new technologies of the networked public disrupt the way people perform their identity online.

16mm | 4:30 | 2007
Director, DP, Editor

A silent film shot on 16mm, Parting compares the loss of a person with crumbling buildings and abandoned spaces. Once seen as robust and permanent, structures disintegrate and memories fade, and the character dissolves into indistinguishable body parts.
