'Earl Watson' is a short film about a struggling street musician inspired by and edited to the music of Chidomo, and is my submission to this year's Vimeo Awards Narrative Category!

This video was about 3 months in the works from when the idea sparked to upload, and wow....I had a really great time bringing this together. It was my first time working with a human character as a main subject, extras, and multiple cameramen, and though it was challenging and frustrating at times, it was extremely rewarding, I learned a BUNCH of stuff, and I am very happy with how it turned out.

I am all the way open to critiques, comments, etc. so please feel free to let me know what you think/feel!

Enjoy!
