Waldo's first ever MINI film fest!
"The Absence of Light"
From Director Richard P. Jones + 3V Studios
A detective named Osolis roams the world helping others infested with "Ghosts", an alternate plain of existence merging into their own. While seeking *true meaning* in all the wrong places and being tormented by his past, Osolis must keep his cool as he stumbles upon a case that not only rips open old wounds, but causes new ones.

MATT WHEELER & VINTAGE HEART
A troubadour, a poet with a guitar, a stage banter-conversationalist - all terms that describe Matt Wheeler's music & performance style well. Matt’s songwriting paints pictures with words, often drawing inspiration from classic works of literature or simply spinning new original stories in song. Lyrics & dynamics play a key role, as each song really means something, and each one is delivered with an honesty that is compelling.
When playing solo, Matt draws audiences in with engaging stories and interaction, while shining the spotlight on the lyrical strength of his songs. When joined by his band Vintage Heart, the poignant lyrics meet expressive strings and driving percussion to make orchestral folk songs that rewards repeated listens. The result is a pleasing sound that recalls wordsmiths like Denison Witmer, Iron & Wine, and James Taylor.
“Warm sound & heartfelt lyrics. If you are a fan of Josh Ritter give a listen to Matt!”
- Helen Leicht, WXPN Philadelphia
"Matt really has a way with words. He puts poetry to music really rather than simply writing songs. Very beautiful writing."
- Red Line Roots, Boston

THE MINKS ARE A BLUESY, PSYCHEDELIC EXPLOSION FROM NASHVILLE, TN.
In 2015 on a search for creative community, Nikki Barber started the band based on the idea that "if you don't create, you'll combust". The rest of the cast is revolving with talented members of the local music scene. Just like a rock and roll circus, you never know what you're going to get. Inspired by the old days - Warhol's Factory, Townshend's windmills, Dylan's poetic phrases - the band tries to blend a sliver of those remarkable times into today's world. They aren't afraid to sit back in the groove and let the musical magic take over your mind. They've been called a southern Velvet Underground, with gritty, no-nonsense riffs and twangy melodies.

Recently featured on Jack White's album, "Lazaretto", Nashville based harpist and songwriter Timbre has been enchanting audiences throughout the US and Europe in growing numbers with her unique brand of harp-fronted chamber-folk. Her career has caught the attention of the music world, and has led to her recording and collaborating with rock legends Jack White, Tom Jones, Ricky Skaggs, and rock bands such as mewithoutYou, O'Brother, Brooke Waggoner, and The Chariot. The pairing of Timbre's classically trained voice and harp skills with the dynamic sounds of her talented backing band have entranced crowd after crowd, often bringing complete stillness to crowded bars and festivals, silencing audiences of thousands. With her creative and innovative bandmates Chris Leidhecker (drums) and Camille Faulkner (violin), Timbre creates lush soundscapes that pull in listeners of every background. Sometimes haunting, sometimes driving, sometimes unabashedly joyful, Timbre is a musical experience that is completely unique and compelling, reminding listeners that music can move us like nothing else can.
Hailed by earmilk.com as “a gorgeous tapestry of audible poetry”, Timbre’s newest album Sun & Moon paints vividly with the light, the joy, the passion of modern music, and the darkness, depth, and richness of classical music, and shows that together, they can communicate beauty in greater depths than either can alone. Timbre seeks to draw listeners into both worlds, learning and experiencing the beauty of both, hearing their unique languages, until a new dialect is formed.
