Hello Everyone meet Brandon Tyson a senior at RISD! He is currently working on his senior thesis film and has a kick-starter campaign with 8 days left. He is currently 93% towards his goal and needs your help to complete the mission. He was our first customer in line at RADISH the day we opened so in return lets help him reach his goal! :) Any contribution would be appreciated he has already raised over $4,500 and currently needs less then $500!
Check out his Campaign:
La Maison Royale
I like to think of the film as a vibrant tango with multiple masked partners and tons of twirling, causing double-vision and nausea, but all with an intoxicated smile.
The film is an emotional and surreal story of a bribery that quickly turns to uncertainty, all taking place at a motel right before dawn’s gray-blue arrival. Each character will reach a boiling point where their personal morality and understanding will be contradicted based on context.

Meet our good friend Ashton Agbomenou, he is a senior studying film at the Rhode Island School of Design (vimeo)(paintings). He is working on his thesis film titled “Doubting Tomas” . He originally entered the world of art and design with painting as his primary tool of trade. He soon realized that what attracted him to paintings wasn’t just the way things looked but also the stories that they told.
As Collegiate Entrepreneurs and Artist we try to express our vivid dreams to the world through creative projects like this! However we struggle to find the time to execute these ideas considering we are full time students. When we have the opportunity to come together and help each other achieve our goals we don’t hold back! We are a tight knit community of creative thinkers who will go out of our way to see our peers succeed!
Ashton is not just a friend of RADISH he has cooked on the truck and co-produced a couple of our videos!
With this being said we are proudly standing behind Ashton and will support his career in motion picture anyway possible!
Please take the time to check out Ashton’s Campaign and if you are not able to support by donating share it with friends/family or simply enjoy his journey! I’m sure you will here more about him in the future! We believe in Ashton and his mission to help you understand man’s inner struggle with religion!
If we presume upon us our own strength, and tempt the devil to tempt us, we provoke God to leave us to ourselves.
Doubting Tomas explores a mans inner struggle with religion. The main character,Tomas, has denied the powers of God for most of his life but when his wife, Rose, falls critically ill he must work to pay off the hospital bills. When she shows no sign of getting better he resorts to prayer with the hope that he can save her life. After a bad day at work Tomas is visited by the Devil who offers Tomas his wife’s health in return for his companionship. Their encounter transitions from the diner to the inside of Tomas’s head where the ideas of biblical characters are explored more abstractly.
A RISD thesis film about a bus driver’s inner turmoil with religion. He works to pay his dying wife’s hospital bill but his fragile faith in God is tested when the Devil pays him a visit.
