The Last Ride

Along with my Girlfriend, I Produced, edited, and directed a documentary on a unique gothic young woman who closely resembles Beetlejuice’s, Winona Ryder. And who drives a hearse as her vehicle of choice. Through a chance encounter at a local Walmart, I approached this individual and learned about her perspective on life and death. With her consent, I embarked on the challenge of respectfully capturing her unique perspective in a documentary. This approach allowed me to create a compelling and thought-provoking film that delves into the importance of being open-minded and respectful when interacting with individuals who may have different perspectives and lifestyles, which is a valuable lesson that one can apply in many different ways contexts.
