Unsung Hero

April 2, 2010


This was the last video to be created for the String Theory DVD. Up until this point, none of the clip videos I had made were about me. Sure, I was featured in other videos, but I was never the only one.

This video didn’t even start out as my idea.  I was helping my ex-gf with a project where she had to take her baby pictures and rephotograph them at her current age. She had mentioned something about me not having my own video, and that I should put something together to showcase where I started and how far I’ve come. Well, at this point I was pretty much out of the yoyo scene, so I figured it would be an easy task to throw something together that definitively showed where I was when I started (1999) and where I ended up (2004).

The whole video had a whole “life and death” / “rise and fall” theme to it brought on by not only the baby pictures in the beginning and the text at the end, but also due to the song that was about losing someone close to you. I had, essentially, at this point distanced myself from the yoyo community enough where this seemed fitting to my situation.

At the time I made it, I never thought that I would be returning to the yoyo scene. Now that I have, this video no longer serves a purpose. Nevertheless, I’ve already released it once so I might as well release it again. So here it is in all it’s cheesy glory!
