A young filmmaker uses his camera to transform the banality of his hometown into art. When a friend goes missing, however, his footage exposes a disturbing mystery . . . one he might be inventing.
Frames is an experiment in performance and stasis. The film is intended
to provoke questions regarding character identification, the limits of
expressiveness, and the aesthetic function of reduction/restraint.
Frames screened at the 2012 Wisconsin Film Festival, 2012 Kansas International Film Festival, 2012 Derby City Film Festival, and the 2012 Mt. Hood Independent Film Festival, where it won the JBM Award for Artistic Integrity.
You can now watch Frames for free at Kentucker Audley's NoBudgeFilms.com! The film is totally free to watch, but you are certainly welcome to throw a little something in the "tip jar," if you feel so inclined. Just remember to ensure that you are watching in HD resolution!
