Bad Economy, Neill Prewitt, 2012.  Single channel 1080p video with stereo audio, 20 minutes.

Bad Economy is a short epic musical about a young man's journey to become an artist during the Great Recession. Bobby is a rebel with a Liberal Arts degree, and he's on the run from the "creative economy" that's closing in around him. At every turn it instrumentalizes his critical stance, saddling him with low-wage work and student debt. The only way out may be a harrowing passage down to his own depths wherein lies the artist's heart.
