Off-Line (2010) Trailer
Off-Line is a story about my relationship to work. The film is focused on a small orange capacitor named IZ that lives on the circuit-board control-panel of a microwave oven. The microwave is constantly being abused by a human through overuse and inappropriate application and in the end the microwave shorts out. The human bangs the machine and on the inside IZ is jolted out of its connection holes. IZ is forced to travel around its world seeking life force and discovering the world around it. In a classic hero's journey fashion, IZ eventually comes to the edge of the world and has a vision about work and its place in that system. Now, enlightened, IZ chooses to step out of its connection holes by free will. In the end greater forces in life overcome the gift of the hero's journey.
