Watched Rio Bravo (Howard Hawks; 1959) over the course of one year and chronicled my journey via Twitter. Divided the film into 365 (roughly equal) parts and tweeted one clip per day and commented on what I watched in no more than the 280-character limit of a single tweet. I also made a number of videographic adaptations of the project.

Cited by multiple voters in the 2021 Sight & Sound survey of the year's best videographic work.​​​​​​​
"This is ‘video/essay’ as iterative performance rather than reporting of analysis and I like to think of it in the tradition of Barthes’ S/Z, where scientific method is pushed to absurdist (and intensely personal) ends."

"His transparency has been really revelatory to see, and I really appreciate how he’s invited us all to get to know him a little better through this year-long project. Further, the consistency and discipline of dealing with a single text for a full 365 is such an interesting experiment in the first place."
- Cydnii Wilde Harris, critic & scholar
