Keyboard Memories - Written and Directed by Tyler Montgomery

Synopsis: For the small price of your entire search engine history, there is a company that will take your information, and creates an alternative version of yourself. The much larger price is, you get to meet yourself. The question is, do you like what you type?

Parts:   Avalon: Cautiously optimistically lost in her own fingerprints.

Avalon?: The result of typing out what is cautiously optimistically lost.

The Employee: Disgruntled.

 

You Have the Right to Forget - Written and Directed by Tyler Montgomery

Synopsis: After the devastating effects of COVID-19, courtrooms are no longer required to have physical participants. The plaintiff and the defendant can now submit tweets, phone recordings, and their own memories as evidence for the trial. Can a memory prove someone innocent, or will they always find them guilty?

Parts:   Skye: A herald of truth caught between acts of indifference and bewilderment.

Reput: A playful fox.

The Judge: A harbinger of the final decree of silent justice. 

Mr. Ruff: Angry.
