Philadelphia's independent voice
for film criticism.

Local Spotlight: Chester Makes

Local production company Upland Film Co. recently produced this documentary short about Brennon Jones, a barber from Chester who donates his time by giving free haircuts to Philadelphians who can't afford one. It's a great piece from director David Dominguez that captures the intimacy of Jones' actions, and how it connects him to our community. You can watch the film below and then visit Upland Film Co. at the link above to view other short films about interesting individuals in the Philadelphia area. One feature that is present in all of Upland's films is beautifully constructed camera angles and shot compositions that represent the passion and love these subjects have for the work they do.

Watch the film:
