    I'm Making A Movie!


    Three years ago, my girlfriend's brother died by suicide. He had just started college and it was a shock to everyone (as it usually is). I never really knew how to help my girlfriend through this time and to be honest, I still don't. But I knew that I could listen. And hold her as she cried. And I did so through countless occasions with the dominating thought at the back of my mind that some day I would do something to fight back. To bring awareness to the stigma of suicide, depression and mental illness.

    Finally I'm getting my opportunity to do just that. I wrote a short ten minute film about finding the hope within ourselves to choose to face another day when we're at our lowest, which we will be filming this Summer. It's disguised as a mystery / noir kind of film about a Salesman that knocks on Charlie's door and offers him a way out. I guess it's my own little personification of what the experience of depression has been to me, as I've battled my own demons.

    I'm a lifelong Reds fan and have been a member of Redszone for over ten years, even though I don't post much. I read it every day though and don't even bother closing the tab in my browser. Growing up, I remember watching the games with my dad and syncing the radio broadcast with the TV before MLB TV made it easy.

    Anyway, the Redszone moderators were gracious enough to allow me the opportunity to make my pitch to this community and I can't thank them enough for that. If you are so inclined, I'd so very much appreciate any help you can give in helping me bring this story to life. Even just sharing this project with others will be so helpful. And if any of you have experience with suicide and/or depression, I would love to hear your story.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and go Reds!
