The Writer / 3:00 minutes
Artist name: Edson Oda
This is a short film I created for the Quentin Tarantino’s Emerging Artist Contest to promote the film Django Unchained.
“The Writer” tells the story of Pedro, a young cowboy who defies the writer of the short film (me). I used the footage of the film “Day of Anger” and changed the dialogues in order to create this comic book world ruled by the sacred script.
