When I was 17, my friend Daniel and I embarked on a quest to create a documentary of hardcore punk bands that we loved playing live in LA. The result, after two years of shooting footage, editing videos, and meeting new people, was an hour and a half production featuring over 40 bands from the US and beyond.

We set up distribution with various record labels, and had the bands pass them out on tour. In all, we produced 10,000 copies, and managed to break even. While video isn’t really in my repertoire these days, it was a blast to complete this project, and it remains something I’m still mad proud of.
