Their first feature film Bugs premiered in 2016 and is distributed on DVD and VHS by Random Man Editions (NYC), and they organized and hosted the performance art show and livestream Doored from 2012–2017. They recently presented King Edward VII Equestrian Statue Floating Down the Don (2017), a public art performance in Toronto in the Don River. The project was covered widely by the press, including in The Guardian, The Washington PostVice, and CBC radio and TV.
