2018 Interview with Troy Alan and Victor Varnado of Dear Mom

'Dear Mom' is a documentary/video tour of my life in New York City made especially for my mother in Canon City, CO. Traveling to NYC would be extremely difficult for her as she is disabled and has troubles getting around. So, I decided to make this video postcard for her so she can see the places I go, the people I know, and the things I do. I hope that she finds comfort in knowing that I'm doing what I love and have good people around me. After watching the interviews with my friends in the short, I'm not sure the latter is so true.
