Brynne Vaness can see the future, or so she says. And those that believe and those that do not believe will go to any lengths to prove it. What begins as a spiritual quest to understand her ability, quickly turns into a struggle for her life, pitting Brynne against organized criminals, terrorists and even Homeland Security.

As she learns more about her visions, both their power and limits become increasingly apparent, and Brynne finds that her own future – her own survival – is anything but certain.

Still from the feature film, Godot
Godot, a modern farce

Terrorism. War. Lost Luggage.

Waiting for a train has never been this exciting.

The search for lost luggage leads to bizarre encounters, diabolical terrorism, and even the key to winning a long-standing civil war in this existential farce which has little to do with the Samuel Beckett play Waiting for Godot. While the others in the Beckett play are just waiting around for him, we learn what has delayed Godot (pronounced Gu-doe. It’s French. Samuel Beckett wrote Waiting for Godot in French, although he was Irish. He later translated it to English. Yes, that is odd).

Rick Stokes delivers the ultimate straight-man performance as the unwitting and unwilling Godot as he bumbles from one encounter to another. With a good dose of Monty Python-esque dialogue and homages to the old school comedy of Jack Benny, the Three Stooges, and Abbott and Costello, this is an independent film that was almost not completed thanks to the weather, a not-so accurate train schedule and that unfortunate bomb scare. 70 minutes, original and classic songs, suitable for general audiences.

Written by M. Thomas Cooper. Directed and Produced by Greg Kerr.

Starring Rick Stokes as Godot, Shawn Cates as The Porter, Steve Coker as Constable Burl, and Molly Stack as Christine Aruba-Orleans.

The Puppy Man promotional image one.
The enigmatic Puppy Man

A stranger visits a small, Northwest town to learn about the mayor who the townspeople revere. What she finds is far from typical: in their schools they teach their children an invented language instead of English, a Good Humor man drives by and delivers puppies to all the kids instead of ice cream, and all the townspeople are required to work on some gigantic building project in a nearby field.

When she finally meets the mayor, she learns a disturbing secret. And then he learns a few secrets about her, too.

Unremembered, an independent sci fi film
Unremembered, an independent sci fi film

Winner of three best film awards

Unremembered (Indie Fest and Accolade award winner, feature film) is a complex thriller told in non-linear time about a man who has no past. This independent sci fi film follows the alternate reality journey of John Outis (Tim Delaney, Indie Fest award winner, lead actor) over sixteen days as he tries to restore his fractured life history. But the more his dark past comes into focus, the more the lives of his friends, his wife, and his lover are altered.

As his past threatens to end his future, he turns to Tina Plantes (Karla Mason), a brilliant and unconventional physics professor. Drawn deeper into the bizarre events of John’s life, she discovers a disturbing and far-reaching set of truths about dreams, time, and the power of the human will.

Unremembered is a “sinuous and riveting independent film in the tradition of David Lynch” declares A.G. Nigrin, Executive Director, The Rutgers Film Co-op/ New Jersey Media Arts Center.

Unremembered was made in Portland, Oregon by Greg Kerr for less than $32,000. It features Portland talent with original music by Nan Avant.

Greg Kerr also wrote the screenplay which earned an Indie Fest award for original screenplay.
