Video Essays

Since 2007 I have been producing short videos that give critical perspectives at film and media. It’s a way for me to satisfy my film criticism and filmmaking impulses at once. Most are related to films covered in Shooting Down Pictures. I have also made video pieces for the Film in Focus Rewatch Series, The Moving Image Source, The Auteurs Notebook and Reverse Shot.

Since 2008 I have served as Vice President of Programming and Education for dGenerate Films, the only speciality distributor of Chinese independent film in North America.
