Jason B was a dear friend and unlike anyone I've ever known. Since he committed suicide in July of 2013, I've wanted a way for my friends and me to be able to hang out with him one more time - and to explain what he was like to people who never met him. So, I made this short film.
The clips come from times I spent with J in college just hanging out or in little scripted videos. The audio comes from a phone call I happened to tape back sometime in the mid-90s. I had this idea of just taping all our phone calls and transcribing them into a book, since Jason was always paralyzed by the idea of writing down any of his stories - though he could tell them over and over with the same passion and detail. I never followed through on the plan except for this one conversation. The music that accompanies those phone clips comes from a band he was in with Colin Frangos called Jason and the Agrinots (or Agrinaughts depending on whom you believe).
Man, I miss Jason. And the more I think about him - the more I realize just how strangely unbelievable he was.
