Motherload Synopsis:

When Mick and Amy visit their elderly mother, Judy, her unexpected announce-

ment and imminent future plans threaten to change their family dynamic. 

Without warning, the underbelly of their unresolved issues and family dysfunction

are brought to the forefront and require immediate attention. Motherload is a look

inside what really happened to a family under the veneer of perfection, happiness,

and suburban affluence.

Skinny Synopsis:

When Kate is ready to make some life changes, she's met with the stumbling block of her weight. Whether it be her doctor or her friend, Monica, perceptions of health and how women should look remain prevalent, even in the age of body positivity. Skinny follows two young women in their late twenties, as they explore their relationship with body image and the active role it plays in their lives, especially as it pertains to each other.

Set twenty years in the future, the internet has inextricably embedded itself into all aspects of everyday life, making wi-fi a necessity for basic survival. In this net-driven and highly political world, Sgt. Donna Lloyd leads a small federal task force dedicated to fighting net crimes, including those of Daria, a cyber-vigilante who has aided several of Lloyd’s cases. But when a digital death threat toward a US Senator implicates Daria, Lloyd must determine Daria’s true motives before the violence spreads to the real world.
