5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Aug. 5 2010

I think the New York Times hit the mark when writing about this release: "Jamie Travis may be one of the most visually minded contemporary filmmakers you've never heard of. With passionate stories of suburban woe and obsession played out against surreal, hyperdesigned backdrops, Mr. Travis's films feel a bit like a mixture of work by David Lynch and Douglas Sirk."

4.0 out of 5 stars The Wes Anderson of Short Films Feb. 9 2014

I was first introduced to Jamie Travis at a film festival where he gave a Q&A following Patterns 3. His style truly caught me off guard as it's a horribly depressing but I couldn't stop myself from laughing. Orchestrating a musical is impressive on its own but he also takes the time to obsess over every detail of the set design. If you're into short film production check out his one of his online and then buy this DVD.
4.0 out of 5 stars oddly compelling, a mix of macabre and humor April 22 2012

I saw one of the shorts on this dvd, The Saddest Little Boy In The World, at the San Francisco LGBTQQ film festival several years ago and loved it. I had been trying to find it online to no avail, and since I remembered nothing of the film other than the title I didn't have much to go on. Just a week ago I ran across a trailer on YouTube which led me to discover this collection of Jamie Travis' short films.

It was great to see The Saddest Little Boy In The World again, and I think it's my favorite short on this collection. That isn't to say I didn't appreciate the others as well. Why The Anderson Children Didn't Come To Dinner was so odd that I think I'll have to watch it a few more times to fully take it in. Ditto the Patterns trilogy.

Beyond the interesting characters and stories, I was also impressed by the visuals and music scores.

Hope to find Jamie Travis' other works on disc since, according to IMDb, he has directed another handful of films.
5.0 out of 5 stars Bizarrely Impeccable Jan. 14 2012

I JUST finished watching Patterns 3, and wow, what an ending to this series. The split-screen musical approach to seemingly deeply meditated quirkiness was marvelously satisfying. And that last scene... what a note to close on!

After watching the visually astounding Patterns 1 & 2 on MUBI.com, I found out the trilogy was available on DVD and immediately bought it, eagerly anticipated its arrival in the mail, then ecstatically viewed the films. The Patterns Trilogy was stylishly and disquietingly delightful, while The Saddest Boy in the World and Why the Anderson Children Didn't Come to Dinner were almost luridly, comically... lugubrious? All seem to exude an astounding attention to detail. To echo and expand upon comments you'll find on the DVD case, I'd describe the work in this collection being close to the outcome of David Lynch meets Wes Anderson meets Edward Gorey meets J. Crew, but decide for yourself! If you have high tolerance for ambiguity and/or a predilection for artsy/experimental film, it's worth venturing into the world of Jamie Travis.
