What is the Seed Series? 

 The Seed Series is going to be a small collection of short films from 35 seconds to 5 minuets long. Each one is not necessarily connected to each other by its plot line but rather narratively connected by the seasons and themes of nature, dreamscapes, masks and costumes.

Each seed is intended to evolve with whatever the weather is doing the day of shooting or how a costume or mask shapes out. I am usually so harsh with myself if my work doesn't come out exactly what I envisioned. I was desperate to create something with the license to be flexible and open. I found on the film shoots I have already completed for this project, that I experience more creativity and awareness in the present moment. Without the stress of perfection, the films have seemed to effortlessly take on a new feeling to them. A feeling that I wasn't expecting or planned for, but felt familiar to me, like it was in me the entire time quiet and waiting for a chance to speak.

One of the more abstract seeds, a collaboration with some very talented dancers from The Yard, featuring Jesse Keller and Holly Jones. 
The dancers were given props and improvised the movements. The title was inspired by Jesse's performance with the bundle of antlers.

From the album GUNG HO by Freddy & Francine available everywhere June 10th. 

We collaborated on this video with multitalented artist/ filmmaker Danielle Mulcahy. We flew Danielle to New Orleans during our tour and she stayed with us for 3 weeks collecting footage from all over the south. We asked complete strangers if they'd lipsync to our song "If You Want Me" and left the interpretation of the lyrics completely up to them. We wanted to show the magic of touring and the juxtaposition of beauty and destruction all over this country while also conveying the idea that everyone everywhere is deserving of love.
