Synthetic Love Incorporated
Feature Film (Post Production)
Feature Film (2018)
Banana Season tells the story of a pivotal point in time for two individuals in the endless season of their lives. Peter is a little person with a big dream of flying like the bird species his dwarfish body most closely resembles. He is hired to paint the town's water tower, a place he comes to see as his very own perch in which to take flight. Sun is a talented cage fighter who loves the energy and excitement of fighting but finds inflicting harm on others more unbearable than just absorbing the pain himself. A tale of true love, friendship and taking flight, Banana Season is a glimpse into the lives of ordinary souls, all at the point in their lives when they flower or fade.

Short Film (2014)
Pins is a visual interpretation of the poem by the same name, originally published in author David W. Pedersen's book, Love is Meat. Set in the heart of the Midwest, this post-recession, Midwestern surrealist film follows one man as he strives for every bowler's dream: the perfect game.
Love is Meat
Born in the back lot of a slaughtering house in which his parents fell in love, David W. Pedersen delivers an eccentric take on The Erroneous All American Dream. Pedersen takes on the challenge of dictating the predictable, classic Midwestern American Mindset, with the penmanship of a nauseated outsider.
Love is Meat delegates the mundane from the surreal, the cynical from the optimistic, and the sensate from the senseless. Topics included are lottery winners, teenage catholic pregnancy, synthetic love, carnival sweeping, feral suburbanite hounds and over-prescribed housewives, bacon infused neighborhoods, and over-whelmed bowling victors.
