I just finished directing a music video for a friend of mine with Parkinson's Disease. He was diagnosed 10 years ago, and wrote this seven years ago. A few years ago he had DBS surgery. There is a clip in the video of him prior to his Parkinson's diagnosis, followed by one before his DBS. The opening shot is of him sleeping. He was waking up with bruises, and so ran a video camera all night to see if he could see anything. He never woke up after flying out of the bed.
He was featured in a documentary produced by the County of Henrico (Virginia) called Battle with Parkinsons, which just won an emmy.
We tried to make the music video entertaining, while still confronting the harsh reality of PD. If you enjoy it, let us know by leaving a comment and favoriting the video:
