As an editor on The Atomic Tree (2019), Loften helped tell the story of a 400-year-old Japanese White Pine bonsai tree that survived the atomic blast in Hiroshima. Other works include the award-winning documentary short Earthrise (2018) and virtual reality experience Sanctuaries of Silence (2017), as well as the acclaimed shorts Welcome to Canada (2017) and Marie’s Dictionary (2015).

Loften’s documentary shorts are potent with environmental elements that might not otherwise have been exposed without his keen eye for detail.
