|Catherine Warner in Alex Withrow's Earrings (2012)|
After working on it for the past year, Alex of And So It Begins... has premiered the first entry of his passion project - a short film entitled Earrings. I don't think I could, in good conscience, review the film because it's much more than that. It's the culmination of a fellow blogger's efforts to create something visual, something more than a blog post. You can read about Alex's journey here.
I will say, I think the film succeeds on so many levels. The visuals are inspired, the performances natural, the music haunting, and the mood wonderfully restrained. That's not a full review, but, again, it isn't intended to be. Call it a hearty recommendation from one blogger to another.
I'm looking forward to watching it in just a little while. Glad you put up this post -- more people need to read/watch Alex.ReplyDelete
Very enjoyable site Josh.
I couldn't agree more, and thanks Sam.Delete
More people need to see Alex's short film, so good job highlighting it here!ReplyDelete
I mentioned the short had arrived to my twitter followers, and see you did also
I agree! I hope more people will hear about the film - be it through Twitter, Facebook, a blog, or on Letterboxd - because it deserves more attention.Delete
Josh, thanks for all of your kind words, both here and throughout this process.ReplyDelete
I can't thank you (and Chris and Sam) enough for spreading the word on the movie. You guys rock.
You're more than welcome man. Your hard work payed off, and you made a great film. I'm happy to spread the word on it.Delete
