Blink, written and directed by Derek Pearson

The average person blinks upwards of 28,000 times a day. Shot on location throughout France, “Blink” offers a brief reflection on all the life that transpires while our eyes are closed, and encourages us to see what is truly important.

Having grown up on and around film sets since childhood, filmmaking left a lasting impression on Derek Pearson, ultimately propelling him into the film industry. He attended film school in New York City in 2002 and has made a career as a video editor ever since. In addition to numerous ads, music videos and short form projects, Derek has multiple feature length credits. He has worked as a director throughout his career, as well as producing a variety of promotional spots, music videos, and short films. His latest short film Blink was shot on location in France and premiered at the Nashville Film Festival in 2018. A long time Nashville native, Derek recently moved to the South Pacific with his family. He lives in Wanaka, New Zealand with his wife and daughter, often passing his time making music.
