Atomic Samurai (1993)
Samurai Johnny Frankenstein is a 1993 martial art based action adventure movie that was directed by and stars Scott Shaw.
This film revolves around the interaction of Sam Rockmore, (played by Shaw) who is a Private Investigator in Hollywood, California and Hal, played by Kenneth H. Kim, who is a half human, half cyborg on a mission to rid Los Angeles of crime.
As is the case with many Scott Shaw films, this movie takes place in Hollywood, California. Another element, which is a trend in the films of Shaw, is that this film is shot in the run-down ghetto sections of the city. This inner-city urban backdrop is a trend in virtually all of his films and is apparently used a conscious metaphor of artist expression.
This is the first feature film when Shaw introduced his reference to Blaxploitation cinema. This is a trend that has continued through virtually all of his later films.
This film is considered a "Zen Film" in that it was created in the distinct style of filmmaking, formulated by Scott Shaw, known as Zen Filmmaking. In this style of filmmaking no scripts are used.
‘’Samurai Johnny Frankenstein’’ experienced a video and DVD release in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. This film was released theatrically in Japan and the Philippines under the title, ‘’Atomic Samurai.’’

Heart of the Bujinkan, Volume I (2006)
Shidoshi Chris Carbonaro, together with Crosswind Pictures, releases Volume I of his Bujinkan instructional movie series, entitled "Heart of the Bujinkan". This movie not only includes instruction on the core fundamentals of Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu/Ninjutsu, the Sanshin no Kata and the Kihon Happo, but also includes an added bonus feature of live training at the Tanuki Dojo in Long Branch, NJ. When asked for the motivation behind the project series, Shidoshi Carbonaro answered, "My main goal was to produce a movie series that would be an effective supplement to any budoka's training, regardless of rank or time training in this martial art. Future volumes will include more in-depth training in both unarmed techniques and weapons, but no advanced techniques are effective without a strong foundation to build upon. I hope this first movie can help strengthen that foundation."

Sermons and Sacred Pictures (1989)
SERMONS AND SACRED PICTURES profiles Reverend L.O. Taylor, a Memphis-based Baptist minister who in the 1930s and 40s built a fiery reputation by lacing his sermons with parables, fables and dramatic visual descriptions. Taylor was also an inspired photographer and filmmaker with a keen interest in preserving a visual and aural record of the fabric of black American life. He photographed and filmed businesses and schools, the National Baptist Convention, baptisms, funerals, and individuals in the quiet dignity of their everyday lives. Over the years he compiled an extraordinary record of Southern black life before the Civil Rights movement. This film is an innovative combination of Taylor's films and audio recordings, images of contemporary Memphis, and commentary by his widow and others who knew him, forming an intertwined narrative about the pioneering documentarian and social activist. Taylor emerges as a man of humor, piety and intelligence, vibrantly involved in the community he loved.
Ruthie and Connie: Every Room in the House (2002)
Set deep in working class Jewish Brooklyn - this vérité documentary follows two very funny, if rather traditional housewives. First, like so many young women in the 1950's, they got married. Then, like so many young women in the 1970s, they got divorced. Unlike most, however, they both left their husbands for another woman: each other. They had fallen madly and passionately in love. For Connie, it was liberating. For Ruth, it was wrenching. And for the community that loved them so much, it was the scandal of the century. In a landmark case in 1988, they sued the New York City Board of Education for domestic partner benefits. Overnight, they became national heroines - and after a five-year struggle, they made history again when they won those benefits not only for themselves, but for all New York City employees, straight and gay. The suit, the first of its kind, helped pave the way for what has now become the LGBT community's crusade for full civil rights and marriage equality. Yet, RUTHIE & CONNIE is much more than a film about two activists and their gut wrenching coming-out story. It's about taking risks and challenging values; it's about two women who spent much of their lives doing "the right thing" - until they discovered that it just wasn't right for them. Framed by the feminist movement and gay liberation, RUTHIE & CONNIE dares the world to take a new look at traditional "apple-pie" values: family, community, religious beliefs, justice - and above all, love. Whether marching in the Gay Pride Parade, or dancing on the Coney Island boardwalk, they are clever, passionate, angry - and always entertaining. They talk. They argue. They swim. They cook. They dance. They laugh. They rage against injustice. They cry. They sing old tunes. They are unabashedly romantic. They also dearly want this film, as they put it, "to continue to help people think and act differently." Today, Ruthie and Connie are now legally married after decades of shar
