Qualia is a super 8 film that I made with the help of musician Craig Jacobson. The project name was originally titled "The Woodsies," named after the toys that I used to play with as a child. Using a constructed forest-like set, a hand-made human-animal hybrid puppet clan, colored lights, and other necessary props, I created a poetic narrative where the characters ponder the concept of existence. My hope is that the narrative will take the viewer on a sentimental and spiritual journey of self-exploration and consciousness.
You can see the trailer for the film, which is now titles QUALIA, on youtube:
