Li’l Bit’s best memories are of being alone in her car doing 90mph down the Maryland back roads with her Uncle, the best, worst, and biggest part of her childhood.  How I Learned To Drive is a Pulitzer Prize winning drama that follows one woman’s journey through alcohol hazes, sexual discovery, confusion, terror and joy, with a man at the centre of it all. This play takes the audience through a complicated and poignant exploration of sexuality, family and childhood, revealing the discerning truth that in life, things are rarely black and white. There are no shining knights or villains, only memory, action and consequence.

The Matrix Rebooted

The Matrix Rebooted was produced by Nik Nok Media in January 2011 as part of the Virgin Radio Fake Film Festival.  The premiere film project for director Amanda Konkin, it starred Ryan Caron, Alex Vandanathuvayalil, Brendan Albano and Amanda Konkin with original graphics by Michael J. Cohen.

Simulating a movie that was largely inspired by Baudrillard’s treatise Simulacra and Simulation seemed like the perfect way to pay homage to this modern classic! The Matrix is full of powerful images and creative filming techniques that were a lot of fun to explore in this 60 second recreation.
