Life. Life is unpredictable. At times it opens doors for you and at other times it grinds you to a pulp, but every cloud has a silver lining... maybe that is what makes it worth living.
Bert Ribul was once a young kid like anybody else, until that day when he was struck by a sight he will never forget and that which forever altered his life. A few years back it seemed like he wouldn't be able to pursue that what he has once found as a kid...
This was a completely self-funded project with no support of any companies. I did want to try an idea that was going around in my head for a very very long time and being absent from the scene and filming in general for 3.5-4 years I had no expectations going in. I didn't know whether Bert has changed his number or not, but I gave it a shot and wrote to him. That very same late evening got a reply and the rest is history as they say. Won't bore you with the details and will just let you enjoy.
Thank you to the artists as well for allowing us to use their outstanding songs for this project and thank you to the security guard that let us shoot at that particular parking lot without any confrontations, despite the fact his superiors were telling him to throw us out.
