TEARS FOR NARCISSUS - film by student Laura Harrison
Graduate Thesis Project
“Tears” is the story of a narcissist, Betty, whose misguided quest for self love results in a botched face. After numerous plastic surgeries gone awry, Betty and her husband, Leonard (himself a borderline who mirrors her obsession with plastic surgery in his fascination with the show Xtreme Makeover), get into a car accident in which a deer crashes through their windshield. Leonard dies, but Betty survives, albeit without a face. Waking from a three week coma, she learns from a nurse that she will require a face transplant. Worse, a doctor informs her, the face is that of a successful suicide. And finally the kicker: New life is stirring in Betty. Will she choose the fetus or her face? And how to cope with the walking dead situation of her transplant?

THE CONSTELLATION SONG – film by student Stephen Decky
“The Constellation Song” is an experimental film created by merging the characters and landscapes in two separate paintings. The paintings (“A Holy Isle Compendium of Lost and Falling Stars” + “The Constellation Song”) were painted successively in 2011-2012; A single High-Resolution image file was taken for each, then worked and re:worked in Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and several other programs. There is a story that links these two images into one, wherein a young green girl drowns herself in the ocean surrounding a newly-formed island, and is then astrally-projected across a pre-historic era, granting her insight into some of the earliest archaeoastronomical history and knowledge.
