A collection of three short stories titled Intimate Semaphores from New York based writer/director/editor T.J. Misny, each a surreal and darkly comic exploration of how our artistic impulses have the power to unite us or alienate us.


Helberger In Paradise stars Kate Lyn Sheil (House of Cards) as a New Yorker who returns to her hometown to make good on an anarchistic promise to a deceased lover.

High And Dry stars Ariane Labed (Attenberg, Before Midnight, Alps) as a street photographer with declining eyesight.

The Crumb Of It stars Jocelin Donahue (The House of the Devil) as a struggling comedian dating a rising star pastry chef.

Plus two 2014 web comedy shorts:

Why Starbucks Spells Your Name Wrong explores the sinister truth behind that time the barista botched your name. At over 10 million views online, it's one of the most popular comedy shorts of 2014. Written by and starring Paul Gale.

Exes, a Vimeo Staff Pick which shows what happens when former lovers see each other in public the first time since the breakup. Written by/starring Ali Vingiano.
