“Only A Switch” is an experimental fantasy about two star-crossed lovers who transcend identity, gender, and the physical world as we know it in order to be together. Drawing inspiration from distinct cinematic voices such as Georges Méliès, Stan Brakhage, and Jonathan Caouette, it is a kaleidoscopic visual feast achieved through inventive digital manipulation, hand-painted film, and old-school optical trickery. Tenderly romantic, delightfully weird, and fiercely erotic, it is not just a film – it is an experience.
Michael Vincent is an experimental and VR filmmaker working in Austin, Texas and originally from Annapolis, Maryland. "Only A Switch" is his first feature film, and was included in the IFP Narrative Labs. His short films "Dream Girl" (2008), "The Grass is Greener" (2009), and "Zoe" (2012), have all screened at the Woodstock Film Festival. Additionally, he co-edited "Invisible," a VR experience produced by Doug Liman, and worked for Glass Eye Pix on several of its films, including Most Beautiful Island, I Sell the Dead, and The House of the Devil. He wants to thank his grandfather Richard Townsend, who passed away in 2017, for inspiring his passion for film.
