Hospital Stop Motion Animation Video
This. This is what I’ve been able to make because of you.
Right before writing “
” I remember thinking:
What Am I Afraid of Saying
What would be the worst thing that people could find out about me? The thing that I wished my clients, family and peers could never know?
My good friend Matthew Tee lost his life to suicide and I knew I had to do everything I could to make this video. Maybe if people knew that an estimated 703,000 people die by suicide worldwide each year, and that one in every 100 deaths (1.3%) in 2019 was the result of suicide, we could save some lives.
Maybe by now you’re thinking “well, you seem to be doing fine. You released
Can You Find A Way
in November, remixed and remastered
Look At Me, I’m Fine
There Is Only Right Now
, have a bunch of singles with
Billy the Kid & Your Funeral
ready to go and now…a stop motion animation music video!”
Maybe you got sick of hearing from me every day after the 7th or whatever
Maybe the past week you realized I went from making something/posting Every Day to almost Nothing for a week.
Except… I was making stuff the whole time.
I’ll always make things. I always have. It’s why I made two albums in my house and released them as *not* Billy the Kid. If a tree falls in the forest right beside me and no one heard my albums…I’d still make one every two years or so.
That’s the thing.
This whole month.
This whole year.
It’s been a year in the making.
All these things are on a list of Things I Want to Do Before I Die. I’ve always dreamed of making a stop motion animation video. I’ve dreamed of being able to make a music video for every song on an album. Just for fun. And like I keep saying,
I have a job
. I’ve been a full time music teacher for the past eight years. I’ve learned to live as cheap as humanely possible for my entire life so that I can continue to Make Art.
You being here means I get to make it well…way faster. and MORE. much more.
Thanks for listening/liking/sharing/commenting and most of all, contributing.
