Private Project

Early Show

Ever have trouble getting out of bed in the morning? So does this guy, and his social media "friends," flooding through his first waking thoughts, aren't exactly helping. Or maybe, just maybe, they're the reason he gets up at all...

No matter how many followers you have, you're invited to wake up with EARLY SHOW - a warm, loving satire about modern frustrations... and cat GIFs (lol).

Director Statement

Whether we like it or not, social media has rewired our brains. If we haven't "performed" for our adoring followers in a given day, what really, have we done? I'm not a morning person. And when that familiar LCD screen flickers in my eyes, often before I see the morning sun, it's easy to hate everything and everyone performing on that tiny screen. But feelings are complicated, especially toward our (virtual) friends...

EARLY SHOW is a satire about waking up in the modern age. I hope you enjoy it!
