How to Show Emotion” is a short film created for my filmmaking class. This piece was entered into the MECA Film Festival and won “Best Narrative” out of over twenty films and three separate categories. As with all of my work, this piece is open to interpretation. Some have suggested that the character I portray resembles a sociopath, some have sat in disconcertment, and some have outright laughed their ass off. “How to Show Emotion” is a silly, sometimes ugly, but mostly sardonic expression of artmaking and the inherent pretentious attitudes that follow.
