Staff Picks is dedicated to surfacing the best music, film, and art downloads on the Internet; digitally handmade by BitTorrent Publishers. Read on for this week’s finds.

In this week’s Staff Picks: A short film by Thomas Schumacher. Things Are Never as Bad as They Could Be is an experimental documentary that explores the audio world of Tom Heithoff. The characters in Tom Heithoff’s audio dramas are men on the brink of a nervous breakdown: fugitives, stubborn outsiders, people who have slipped through the cracks. The film oscillates between escapism and disorientation. Each story is built on a text fragment that brings meaning to the absurd. Download the Bundle to experience the irreverent film for free.
