Director's Biography:

Edward Worthy studied film at The University of Southern Mississippi and attended the Masters in Film program at Florida State University. His education has shaped him to be the artist he is today. Edward is a working Editor and freelance Director in Los Angeles and has worked with talents such as recording artist/rapper Drake as well as Los Angeles Clippers Assistant Head Coach Mike Woodson.

With a multitude of accolades associated with him, Edward’s previous short film “Witness Monitor” has screened at eighteen film festivals across the country and won Best Short Film at The Los Angeles Thriller Film Festival and was nominated for the same award at Scare–A-Con.

Edward has been developing the film and script “Crescent” for over ten years. Edward is intrigued by stories of race, specifically as it relates to the theme of colorism within the Black community. Marching bands are a big part of southern culture and serve as a constructive outlet for the youth. From marching bands that practice corps style (as seen in the military) to the show style marching of predominantly black schools, in “Crescent,” Edward uses his main character’s transfer from one marching band to another to showcase the vast differences between cultures.
