In These Times

A film about a small business in New York's East Village during the time of Covid.

20:24, Gabriel Garton (Director/Producer), Kath Raisch (Colorist), Rocio Garcia (Sound Mixer), Grant Cutler (Original Score)

COVID NURSES is a documentary short film that gives space to four New York City nurses on the front lines of the Covid-19 crisis, to meditate on their thoughts, experiences, feelings and concerns as the country begins to lift restrictions. This raw and intimate film is a time capsule for a moment in history.

Frontliners | The Impact of COVID-19 on Healthcare Professionals
11:14, Auctus Productions (Director/Writer), Daniel Elahi (Producer), Amir Malek (Editor), Reza Malek (Production Manager)

This documentary explores the impact of COVID-19 through the perspective of healthcare professionals across New York City and Italy, the epicenters of the outbreak in the United States and Europe, respectively.

More Than Essential - Behind the Frontline: New York City
4:58, Dr. Udevbulu (Executive Producer), TL Holmes (Executive Producer/Director/Producer), Gerard Pickett (Director of Photography/Producer), Dr. Anthony Andrews (Associate Producer), JeVaughn Martin (Associate Producer), Sandra Folston (Associate Producer), Janay Mosley (Associate Producer)

2020 has been extremely challenging in the United States of America and around the world due to the outbreak of the vicious virus we all know as the Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19). With over 3 million affected by this disease and over 130,000 (at the time of this production) succumbing to its deadly grip. NYC was deemed the epicenter of this pandemic very quickly. No one has taken on this war firsthand like the essential medical workers on the frontline in New York City (NYC). This is why we call them MORE THAN ESSENTIAL.

A Week In June
5:49, Jay Sansone (Director/Cinematographer/Editor)

Filmed single camera “run & gun” on the streets of New York City during the first week of George Floyd protests, 'A Week In June' follows three young leaders in the #blacklivesmatter movement as protests erupt around the city.

This Matters
4:56, JJ Sereday (Director/Director Of Photography/Editing), Kyle Crichton (Camera Operator)

NYC Today’s News and Social Media had half of the world obsessing over the looting and riots after days of protests against police brutality. I wanted to capture the authentic sense of uncertainty juxtaposed with the beauty and power of peaceful protest fighting for equality.

One Day In June
20:52, Johnny Sweet (Director), Ellis Williams (Producer)

After a devastating coronavirus outbreak in the spring, New Yorkers quarantine as hundreds of thousands lose their jobs. With the memory of Amadou Diallo and Eric Garner's deaths not long forgotten, New York City is a ticking time bomb for change following the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis. For one day we follow two large protests in Manhattan and Brooklyn and the immediate effects it had on state legislation.
