    This is the first film by Jacob Mendel I had the pleasure of seeing – clear, knowing and beautifully executed, The Waking Artist is a film that works and also makes the viewer keen to see the filmmaker’s next work. Check out Jacob’s work on Vimeo – you won’t be disappointed.

    good job, jacob. lovin the coney island scenery – reminds me of when i used to play ice hockey at the rink right next to that red tower thing when i was a kid. and “Shoot The Freak” is priceless.

    beautifully shot, but the voiceover accent sounds very michigan and i think the story could be told more compellingly by the voice. I think the flat sound of the voiceover is this film’s achilles heel.
