Synopsis:  EDGING is a chamber dramedy about the brink of adulthood and how quickly it comes.  Jordan is throwing a housewarming party and isn’t around to enjoy it.  He’s fixated on his recently broken garage door opener.  His old friends, and basically a stranger take their turns trying to get him to leave the garage while his colleagues enjoy some coke in the washroom and debate the benefits of a quality salad bowl.  It was made in a garage over four cold days in December.

EDGING will be preceded by the short films, WELCOME STRANGER, and LOVE IN THE AGE OF LIKE

Synopsis:  Welcome Stranger is a naturalistic sci-fi short film about an alien adrift on earth.  With a gaping hole in his chest that no one seems able to see, he relies on an ill-advised instruction manual about human behaviour to guide his attempts to connect with others.

This short is a meditation on loneliness.  The grief of heartbreak knows no narrative and no ending, just glimpses and fragments and trying to put meaning on experience.
