4/4 - Scott Davis
Scott Davis was a teacher at both my middle and high school. I had him for one course. Later, a few months after my university graduation, I ran into him playing with a band. Shortly after, we started shooting for this project centered around regrets and careers in the arts. He was preparing a show of music from the films of Federico Fellini. Fellini's film 8 1/2 had a deep connection to things I had begun experiencing, and things Davis had experienced his entire life. This was two weeks before I moved to New York in pursuit of a career in film.
