Motions videos are compositions of video art set to music. Themes are interpreted by video artists in 2-10 minute productions, drawn from abstracts and real world imagery.

GRAPHIC LOOPS: Fantastic worlds are created by manipulating light, form, liquid and color in infinite and compelling arrangements. "Flashlike" animations respond to the music played under them, creating a distinctively techno experience.

ENJOY THE VIEW: High resolution satellite photography adn aerial views from across and above the globe.

OUT OF THIS WORLD: Virtual worlds in two or three dimensions are created by artists using state of the art computers.

FACE 2 FACE: the steady eye of the camera taps the power of human faces, examining up close the lines, the worry, wonder, fear, longing, regret, pride, and joy playing across them.

FIELD TRIP: Explore wide ranging destinations with the primacy of being there as you see what the camera sees, hear what its microphones hear. Each "field trip" is a single steadicam tour of a big city, a small town, a forest or garden in walks, through exotic urban and rural locales around the globe.
