When the American Migraine Foundation and American Headache Society launched their “Migraine Moment” film contest, I thought, hey I’m artsy and I’ve got a bucketload to say about living with migraine…I should make a video. I wanted to convey the isolation and endless optimism that migraine demands, so I wrote a song and dreamed up a simple day-in-the-life script. But alas, I had no skills with making videos. Not a one.
Luckily, when I contacted my long time friend and professional cinematographer, Ian Macmillan, he jumped aboard with enthusiasm, introduced me to the world of film, and with expert knowledge, efficiency, and artistry, made beautiful shots happen.
Along with editor Shawn Beckwith, here’s what we made.
[pssst…AND the video won the contest. I’m currently to San Diego to present it at the American Headache Society’s 58th Annual Scientific Meeting and soak up some rays! I’ll post my speech here soon. Catch ya later.]
Thanks for watching.
