Director's Comments

Love: it always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. (see 1 Corinthians 13:7)

Commentary: Just over a year ago today, I released my first Valentine inspired animation called "A Date with Julie". In the months following the release of that video, I began to develop the plot surrounding the characters of the film a bit more. A man from my church had seen the video and told me how he liked it. He then suggested I could have them go on a picnic. From here, the story took shape. I had the outline of Gary and Julie's love story nailed down on paper quite awhile ago, but, due to limited resources, I wasn't able to make this video into a reality until recently. I figured it would be appropriate to make the video in time for this year's Valentine's Day. Remember, this is what happens before my first film, but there is still more to Gary and Julie's story. Perhaps it will get told in the near future.
