Unhappy with his father’s decision, Michael’s Uncle Tré forms his own Indian gang, challenging Michael as a Chief and as a man. Michael must decide how important it is to keep the flame of his ancestors burning. Is he willing to do what it will take to show that he is worthy of his calling?

“Muff” by Oliver Parker and Quinn Young – Adam is a former hustler, current odd-job man coping with the loss of his dad. Bela, a finger puppeteer, is two months sober from cocaine, alcohol, and methamphetamine. They’re a month behind on rent.

Nerding Out, Talking Photography & Skateboarding w/Todd Taylor

On this episode of Timecode Presents, we talk to our longtime friend, still and motion photographer, Todd Taylor. What follows is a fly on the wall recording of photo skate dorks discussing topics that range from dollar movie cinema, Easter eggs, sourcing VHS tapes, to historical New Orleans east skate spots. We talk about why making art and making trash is the point, and usually one and the same. Hosted by Randy Perez and Ricardo Barrosse, prepare to nerd out.  Check us out on Apple Podcasts and Spotify!

Timecode:NOLA - Season 1 Streaming Now

In 2003, just 20 short years ago, Timecode:NOLA started out as a television program airing in the New Orleans area.  It ran for six seasons and eventually branched out into markets in Austin, Dallas, Destin & Pensacola Florida, Cincinnati, Louisville, and San Diego.  The show’s bread and butter is short films and interviews with the filmmakers highlighting the independent spirit.  Here is the first season in all of its glory.
