The Story of The Struggle
"The Story of the Struggle" is a dance concept video depicting the intense battle between someone who has become addicted to a substance and the debilitating effect it has on their life. This video anthropomorphizes the substance(s) by depicting them as people. As is true with someone struggling through addiction - the substance becomes their everything - taking up the same space in their soul as a human does. The deceptive relationship between the user and their substance is portrayed, showing them in the throes of the toxic cycle. The substance promises the user everything - life, love and a numb existence. Yet what it never says - it will actually drag you down a path of destruction. We wanted to humanize people who are battling this deadly disease and full of pain in the midst of it. This is the story of the struggle.
This was a short trip that Quinton, David and I went on during CR Experience. I honestly did not shoot that much footage because of how blown away I was of God's wild creation. Defiantly a once in a lifetime experience with the weather being like this and also being with some super quality dudes. Also this is just a short trailer of the full video that I am still currently making. Shot and Edited by: Zach Weaver Timelapses by: David Parks
