Upbeat is a short documentary about the relationship between homelessness and art. The entire production, from finding a subject, to shooting, to final cut, was done by myself and my class partner, Emily. We had some friends help out along the way, and an incredible organization who allowed us to enter their home and join their community. This film is owned by the University of Southern California, and all video and audio is protected under Fair Use.
That’s me playing my tenor saxophone with my old USC jazz combo. If you need to add some ambience to any upcoming social or work functions, let me know. I’m looking for a side hustle, and I come way cheaper than the pros. I also play drums, piano, and guitar, and yes, I want to join your emo-revival band.
