It's Killing Me

By nature I make documentary type stuff. I don't feel comfortable letting my feelings show or dealing with personal matters in public arenas. This is definitely one of the most personal videos I've ever posted. I'd been toying with narrative work recently and when this idea was born was rather upset about my work in general and just me as a person. Luckily, I have great people in my life that encourage me to create even when I don't think I can and push me to do my best for me and not for what others. I hope whoever sees this enjoys it but I didn't make it for you. I made it for me. It was a struggle to even be willing to post it. I owe many thanks to David Stith for graciously letting me use his music. You can check his work out at www.dmstith.com. I also owe many thanks to Dave Huth who always offers encouragement on my crazy ideas and provides me inspiration through his work. You can check his work out at www.davidhuth.com. "Real teachers make you believe in yourself, even when you would rather take the easy way out and quit. They draw the best out of you and their inspiration often gives you the courage to fight on." -Ron Lindeboom

Wow! I really liked how you did this. I must admit it is kind of sad, but still it was nice. And nice to see Stith music, I have not heard about him in a while.
