Ed Roman’s “Red Omen” Video Gets Online Premiere At NY Lift-Off Film Festival Online

Award-winning Canadian musician Ed Roman has always created music videos that were both visually entertaining and, like his personality, a bit quirky and off-center.  From the red-pinstriped-clad “Godfather of Love” character in “I Am Love” to the bumblebee-shaded snow traveler in “I Found God,” Ed’s self-directed visual depictions of his songs have left long-lasting impressions, earning accolades and racked up over 75,000 views.

Now, Ed Roman is unleashing his most ambitious visual undertaking to date.  At midnight on Sunday, June 24th, 2018, Ed’s animated opus, “Red Omen” will make its world online premiere during the New York Lift-Off Festival Online 2018.

 The festival will take place for the entire week at http://Vimeo.com/ondemand/nyliftoffonline18.  (Please note that the link will not work until the festival is published live.)  Winners will be selected from a combination of fan votes, internal judge votes, and Lift-Off community votes.

Ed also plans to use the “Red Omen” video to raise funds for Dyslexia awareness, a cause very near and dear to his heart.
