It’s Friday! I have a new film for you to watch. This week, I wanted to share my thoughts about what Thanksgiving means to me. The holiday carries a deeper truth within its origins, and this is something that America as a nation will need to reckon with more fully.
“Honor the Truth About Thanksgiving” features some haunting and beautiful archival photography of Native American tribal members. I layered this film with a percussive score that accents the tumultuous descent of America’s true Thanksgiving legacy.
As you make plans for the holiday next week, think about what you can do to acknowledge or bring awareness to the truth about Thanksgiving.

Thank you all so much for watching my films. I put a lot of thought and effort into them, and it means so much that you can take the time to see them.
Be safe out there and see you next week!
It’s Friday!! Hooray!!! Not only has the weekend begun, but it is now time for a new installment of Roque’s Friday Films! I took a break last week because of the incredibly stressful presidential election going on here in the US, but today, I present to you a film called “Autumnal”.
Living in the hills and woods of middle Tennessee has given me the chance to enjoy all of the fall colors that are unravelling right now. I literally cannot get enough of how strikingly beautiful all of it is—so much so, that I made a film to showcase the colors and foliage that exist right outside my door.
“Autumnal” is a contemplative film that highlights the vivid changes occurring in nature during a fall season. It features original music by my frequent collaborator and talented musician Andrew Weitze.

Thank you all so much for watching. Tune in next week when I feature another brand new film!
Due to the stress of the ongoing US presidential election, I have decided not to release a new film this week. My anxiety over this contentious election and the soaring rates of Covid-19 have made it hard for me to focus on my film work.
This week, I wanted to give you all a comedic mental break from all of the stressful madness that is ongoing in the world right now. This post features a few of my comedic films. Above, you can watch the official music video for the song I released last summer called “Cat Daddy”.
And here is the companion lyric video for the song:
If you are up for something truly unusual and kooky, here is my short film YUP that is intended to make you chuckle and wonder what the heck did you just watch:
Lastly, I wanted to share the first installment of my fake comedy show “The Other Foot”. It’s about feet, sort of.
With so much change and upheaval happening in the world right now, it is important to take care of oneself and have a good laugh whenever possible.
I will be back next week Friday with a new film for all to see.
Thank you for watching.
