Animating the Demons.

Animating the Demons.

I am working on a feature - a funny film about depression "Rocks In My Pockets".
The subject of depression is very important to me, personally. I have obsessive suicidal thoughts almost every minute of my day. At age 18, I tried to commit suicide, and was hospitalized. I was diagnosed as manic depressive at 22. The last time I took pills for my mental affliction was six months after release from the mental hospital. I do not take pills anymore - I can't afford them, and they dull my mind. The fact that I live and am able to work is a result, partly, of years of hard inner work - I am determined to be happy - and partly because of my education - I have a BA in Philosophy and am trained to think, analyze and persuade. The person I have to persuade the most is myself.
Every day I wake up and have to find a new meaning to my life. Luckily, I have been able to find it. My three cousins were not as lucky, and they were more successful at their suicide attempts than me. Over the years I have pondered whether there was any connection between us, the suicidal cousins from my father's side of the family. I started to ask questions and unravel old family secrets. This is what "Rocks In My Pockets", my first feature film, is about. I call it a funny film about depression, but in fact it is sometimes serious, sometimes funny, but overall deeply personal, just like my film Teat Beat of Sex.

That's pretty awesome. I love the art style. It's really relatable and funny.
