Short Film: “Scarecrow” by Jake Viramontez

I’ve shared the work of director Jake Viramontez before, with the minidoc “Killing the Rock“. That beautiful documentary profiled a victim of the Syrian civil war who deals with his grief through sculpting. Now Jake Viramontez is back with a moody thriller called “Scarecrow.” And I don’t want to spoil anything, but unlike “Killing the Rock,” this short film actually fits the genre of my blog.

Also a minor disclaimer: I went to high school with Jake, but I’m sharing the film purely on its own merits. Enjoy!

Intriguing, isn’t it? I thought so. I like the conceit and would love to see the story expanded in the future.

If you like me showcasing short films like this, let me know. And if you liked “Scarecrow” and “Killing the Rock,” keep track of Viramontez’s work on his Vimeo page. And consider voting for “Scarecrow” at the Musicbed Challenge! I already have.
