We see that small towns are changing rapidly around Asheville. Is there something in small towns worth preserving? This documentary looks at the shift from a manufacturing and transportation based economy to an arts-based economy in Marshall, NC. We explore how this affects residents by looking through the lens of this family hardware store, and paralleling them with emerging art scene.

The Faces Of The Fletcher Feed And Seed: A Small Town Gathering For Traditional Music And Community
The Feed and Seed is a historical building in the town of Fletcher North Carolina. In the past 20 years, it has been renovated into a bluegrass hall where shows are held on the weekends. It is a prominent gathering space for locals and is commonly filled to the brim with patrons listening to traveling and nearby bluegrass groups. This is also a location where Sunday morning Christian services are held with traditional sermons and bluegrass influenced gospel music. The goal of this film is to capture the unique environment of the Feed and Seed and the sense of community created by the people that gather there.

Late Bloomer
Ah - middle school. Three years of Axe body spray, sagging pants and pre-algebra. Everything feels like the end of the world. There are a lot of emotions that come with being a pre-teen and those emotions all come to a head at the middle school dance. What happens when you put a bunch of sweaty, hormonal kids in a room together for two and a half hours? Absolute chaos. It seems like nobody has fond memories of this time and even if they do exist, people are hesitant to talk about them. Why are we like this? What happened? Does middle school really have that much of an impact on a person's life? This documentary hopes to reexamine this time period, its ups and downs, and maybe allow us to laugh at ourselves a little bit. We conducted interviews with college students as well as current middle schoolers about their experiences, which were then reenacted for the camera.

A group of friends have been asked to come together and build a puzzle. The goal was to capture how a group of people, particularly friends, can work and interact with each other in a casual setting to accomplish a goal. We wanted to see who committed to the task and who didn't, or how some preferred to work by themselves while others needed support. In the end it was about capturing something very human and personal through the lens of something as mundane as building a puzzle.
