        BEST VIEWED IN HD! Finally re-edited, so not out of sync... it's not perfect, but it's the best I could do! This is my final A2 Media Production, stemming from my Media investigation citing the question: 'How is Nostalgia portrayed in contemporary music videos?' (And yes, like true '50s style I had to give the protagonist a rather hegemonic sounding stage name... 'Veronica Scarlett' was thus born.) Filmed on a Nikon D5000 This is inspired by Dan Blank's 'Whatever Lola Wants': http://www.vimeo.com/13762496 (and also slightly influenced by Christina Aguilera's 'Candyman') Please Note: No Copyright infringement is intended through the use of 'Bury My Troubles' by Imelda May, Decca Records. It is merely for Entertainment purposes. Special Thanks to Carl McCabe who made this possible, and also to Annie and her fabulous costumes!

                This is the first film I ever made. It's a short documentary about my 46-year-old Uncle Dan, who has Down Syndrome. The movie depicts Dan's daily life and struggles, while simultaneously showing his fun, loving, charismatic side. The film recently received second place in the Cinema Touching Disabilities Film Fest in Texas. Enjoy.
