“Jennifer Thomas’ New Masterpiece – “The Fire Within””
In a dystopian and colorless universe nobody dreams, and nobody wins. Emotions are useless, as are abundant thoughts. A hive with marked paths to serve an unnamed queen.
He saw her. He touched her. She was the only one to break him from years of mechanic and automatic routine, if only for a flash. Where will that lead him? Straight to a new understanding, or straight back to hell?

Redemption is my third and final non-narrative experimental film that deals with the death and resurrection of the human essence. This is not about a physical death but a spiritual one. The themes are my abstract interpretations of actual events that I have experienced. Those experiences dealt with the death of hope and spirit and their restorations.
Geometry is a visual music animated piece. Inspired by Oskar Fischinger and John Whitney, Geometry combines graphic shapes with music to show a ball’s journey.
The House of the Rising Sun is a place of transition in music and folklore. It’s a purgatory where travelers, vagabonds, and lost souls cross paths before continuing toward their life after. Absolution is a snapshot of that purgatory, that waiting room, where souls must accept the regrets and disappointments in their lives before they can cross over. Personal struggles are highlighted in duets and solos throughout the piece. Some remorse is too difficult to let go, though, and while many find reprieve from their sins and escape the cycle of self-recrimination, others are doomed to stay and repeat it.
