Transposition is a portrait of Jeff Richey, environmental specialist by day and jazz musician by night. Explore the intertwining lives of one man trying to sustain his living and make his art in Denton, Texas for the past 35 years.
Summer Snapshot, shot in the summer of 2009, is a short essay film recreating a sun-soaked summer day with a group of friends who load up in a wood-panel Wagoneer, drive along winding forest roads, hike a secret trail, and spend an afternoon skinny-dipping, strumming guitars, tossing a frisbee, and circling a campfire. Summer Snapshot is about the carefree in-the-moment living between youth and adulthood. It is a reflection on golden memories as we grow older. Shot in super-8 film and Polaroids, edited in HD, it evokes a warm, ephemeral mood.
