I made this two-minute short film for you because I love you

Here are two funny reactions I’ve heard after publishing my first short film.
“Are you planning on making a whole movie?”
“Are you trying to hypnotize me?”
The answers are, of course, yes, and yes.
The ease with which I find storytelling visually is astonishing to me.
I’m not bragging.
I’m saying, we all have natural inclinations. I can’t, for instance, rebuild an engine, shoot someone in the face for America, or do a backflip.
But I can point a camera and tell a story.
The biggest surprise I’ve had is how much I love film editing.
My great photography friend Jessica tells me I like editing video, because I am a professional writer, and writing is storytelling, just like video editing.
I think she’s dead on it. Telling an emotional story feels like second nature to me. I’m a drama queen. Or a comedy king. Or some other royal pain in the ass.
If you’d like to encourage me to make more entertainment for you, please consider doing any one of the following things.
A. Subscribe to my YouTube channel, like all my videos, watch them through to the end so that the YouTube algorithm sees that my videos get watched, and write many comments under my YouTube videos. The more engagement you give my videos, the more YouTube will care about you and me, and then I can begin to get money from YouTube. Financial support means more of me and you sharing these bonding times together.
B. Straight up, send me money via my PayPal at:
C. Mail gift cards, review products, presents, and postcards to me at:

And let me know how you like this film. It’s a little me me me, but I promise I’ve not turned it o a douchebag.
It’s not narcissism.
It’s art.

All my crazy love,
— Doug
