This video will restore your faith in humanity when it has been shaken by the troubles in this world. . . It definitely restored mine while I was filming it so much so that I literally had to take breaks to regroup and gather myself before the next shot. I was very moved by the people in this video especially the last two shots with the sign.
The idea was to appear close to committing suicide to see how people would respond and everyone that I put in the video clearly responded with care and shock. A few responded negatively but i chose not to put that in even though what was said would have probably gotten this video on worldstar.
The idea for the last part was to hold my “Sign of depression” simply to see who would stop and see what was going on. Most people walked by, looked back and thought about returning but only these people came back to process with me.
A few people apparently notified the campus counseling center and an actual therapist came out to talk with me. There was so much more to this video than I put up do to time restraints and I may upload a larger video later.
Please share this video via Facebook and Twitter if you enjoyed it, related to it, laughed or smiled at it :3) It REALLY helps to get these kinds of videos out there and it pushes me to be more creative and original!
