A few years ago, I met Roy Thackerson. Roy is one of those unique individuals that you meet and cannot forget. Roy possesses a love for music and an indomitable spirit. He is also a great entertainer. But mostly, Roy is a Texan and a good friend to those around him. I hope this video shows Roy's character and the fact that he is character. There are not many like Roy.
You can learn more about Roy by visiting his website: fingerlessfiddler.com.
I was given the opportunity on a few occasions to film Roy, either in a sit down interview or at a concert, and have put together the beginning of his story. This video was filmed over a period of one year. Shot with a Canon XH-A1 and a Canon 5DM2/28-105f4. Edited in Adobe Premiere with minimal color correction, mostly for luma levels to increase contrast.
