    Default When you realise how useless you are...

    Sometimes we videomakers lose sight of the fact that a video is meant to communicate something, usually a message. We're so far up our own butt that we start to believe that the means of communication is more important than the message.

    I got sent this link and eventually got round to watching it with initial scepticism. It's not made by anyone I know, the music is tacky, the material mostly from other sources. The editing is nothing spectacular and the camera technique "everyday". It's just a story about a father and his son, something which would normally be a turnoff for me but I watched it to the end, and sat there dumbstruck, having been put firmly in my place.

    For me, it sort of put things into perspective...

    wow its amazing sometimes what humans can do for other people, These sort of stories should be on the news not the crap they have on there. People like this, should be knighted not bloody singers who have just sung all there lives???
