“Teardrop” the short by Damian John Harper where I did the production design has been invited to over 30 Festivals around the world. See the trailer.

Completely shot in the subjective point of view of the main character, Teardrop depicts the violence and psychological pressure of being part of a gang. We shoot in New York city on locations in Queens and Chinatown
