Mitzi & Mencken (2007, 14 minutes, color, digital video) uses Mitzi Swan's paintings to tell the story of her arrest for playing interracial tennis in 1948, and the trial that became the subject of H. L. Mencken’s last Baltimore Sun article.


Tangerine Crows (2001, 3 minutes, color, digital video) is a music video for The Slow Jets that combines a discordant array of stop-action animated creatures with South Western landscape photography to show the tragicomic dance between predator and prey.


Horse Gultures (2000, 22 minutes, B&W/Color, S-VHS/16&8mm) was made with Fort Lewis College's Video Practicum class, and depicts a community's struggle to maintain open space usage for Horse Gulch in Durango, Colorado in the face of pressing development.


The Spontaneous Generation (1998, 23 minutes, Color, B&W, Hi-8 video) highlights the involvement of four "at-risk" youths who participated in an improvisational drama program designed to raise HIV/AIDS awareness in Baltimore city public schools.


Waves of Pure Lemon (1996, 15 minutes, B&W, Hi-8 video/Super-8 film) shows a woman at the age of 70 recalling the profound effect that Virginia Woolf's To the Lighthouse, and the news of the author's suicide had upon her as a young girl in 1941.


Metro (1994, 8 minutes, Color, VHS) is both a music video for Dmitri Shostakovich's 11th symphony, and a tribute to the Moscow subway system. All footage of the Moscow Metro was taken by Joseph Christopher Schaub during a visit in 1994.
