Watch Now – “Karim”

Watch Now - "Karim"

Here’s the excellent and powerful short film Karim , written and directed by Carl Seaton (One Week). The silent film, though shot over two days, earlier this year, in L.A., was made as a response to the violent summer that Chicago experienced last year, and which had a profound effect on Seaton, a Chicago native.

In the film, which was shot with a Canon 7D for all you techno geeks out there, (I’m an Arriflex 35MM man myself); Seaton said that he: “wanted to shoot something without depending on dialogue as well as make the audience redirect their sympathies from prey to predator.

Please tell us what you think about the film.

What a powerful piece of work without the use of dialogue. It was very engaging, and it took a turn that I was not expecting. The music set the tone, and the acting was superb. You are extremely talented Carl, and I look forward to viewing any project with your name attached to it. Thanks for sharing!

Wow, this had my heart beating fast the whole time! What a disturbing yet powerful piece! Beautifully shot & scored too. Props to Carl and all my homies in the cast (Fred, Eddie, Kenny, & Hadrian). GREAT work!

Superb, on so many levels. Great production value. Impactful and engaging content. Two thumbs up!

(Does Eddie show up again at the end, after his character shot himself in the park, what’s up with that?)

Charles Hemphill Jr,

This story puts alot on one’s mind; there are many who probably feel like doing the same thing. Good Work Carl. Great balance between film and music. Good to hear from you and Kenny.
