Terence Shelly - Director of Closure and Know Remorse
Born and raised in Albuquerque, NM, Terence grew up with a passion for story telling which grew quickly into a love for film. Being surrounded by the arts at a young age, from music to theater to art galleries, he picked up his first 35mm still camera in high school and through the lens a love developed for the moving image. After studying intensive art at the Oxbow School in Napa, California, his further exploration in the moving image only strengthened. He Graduated from UNM with a BFA in the IFDM program. These two films were part of his senior thesis.
After seeing her boyfriend jump out of their loft apartment window, Lindsey goes on a search to find him, only to travel deeper into self-discovery of the true events.
Letting go can seem like something we’re not made to do. It can leave one walking a lonely path, or tirelessly waiting, hoping that one-day what was lost might be found. What then? What good can come from a reunion with the past? How many times will you stumble on the stones from the path behind you? Closure explores what it is like to have loved and lost; and what happens when you try to answer the open question of what might have been.
Director Terence Shelly says, "Know Remorse captivated me with the idea that you get to examine your life right after death. Our main character gets the opportunity to discover what really happened and move on to the next stage of her existence. What comes along with her discovery is the abusive reality of her relationship with her boyfriend.
Closure dives deeper into the moments between dialogue, looking hard at how a story can be told through the subtleties of acting. This also involves a deeper exploration of the significance of each piece as it relates to the whole."
Jordan Hoffman - Director of Somewhere the Water
Since the age of 11 Jordan Hoffman has been dedicated to virtually every aspect of the filmmaking process. Recently graduated from UNM Jordan has started JBH Productions to pursue his passion further; creating inspired video content while still working towards personal fulfillment as a Director and Cinematographer.
Somewhere The Water tells the story of two brothers, Luke and Leonard. Jumping between past and present, we see the disintegration of their relationship, and the drastic choice Luke makes after the loss of his older brother; to abscond with the ashes to the mountains of northern New Mexico.
Director Jordan Hoffman says, "Somewhere the Water is an exercise in subtly; exploring deep complex emotions in characters as well as the audience without the heavy hand of melodrama."
