A young man's struggle through the patterns of his behavior, women, and religion. I show a theme and the character's response to it. The themes and responses will be LOVE/COMPROMISE, HOPE/CRUSHED, FAILURE/REPETITIVE, & PASSION/BOREDOM. I alternate four characters, two of which will represent the same person.

The style I use is montage, mixing video with still photography. The tone-descriptive words I use to guide my style choices are "dream, prayer, & movement." 'Dream' will show up as distorted stills, matter-of-fact discontinuity between locations and characters, out of sync audio, etc.. 'Prayer' comes from a Godard quote: "make a camera movement as if you were in prayer" (film, theory, & philosophy) and the religious aspect of the content. 'Movement' is what will drive shot decisions along.

Includes new and old footage. The shooting takes place in Pittsburgh and State College, PA.
