    Earthwork inspired me on so many different levels. I am an upcoming entrepreneur and watching this artist struggle with one of the biggest opportunities of his life, truly pulled at my heart. Chris the director and writer is humble and amazing at this same time. When you have a chance to see this film, take it! Earthwork has inspired like no other!
