Special Features (2014) is a lo-fi interview exploring a mishap. In TESTER (2015), a private eye recounts a complicated case, set against an unedited BetaSP tape. B-ROLL with Andre (2015) combines stock footage with imagery shot using a GoPro camera to present an anonymous monologue about a prisoner’s dangerous dream.

The three films were produced in sequential technological formats (BetaSP, MiniDV, HD) to correspond to the timeframes of each story (prequel, original, sequel).
