[This was my current video project. Unfortunately, I had to cut it short.]
On April 29th, 2014, Ian, Andrew, and myself had the unluckiest day of our lifes. After a morning of skating the streets of San Francisco, and en route home for a couple of drinks at a local bar in honor of Andrew's 25th birthday. All three of us were plagued with tragedies. We made a quick stop at a Jamba Juice for some refreshments, and in the 15 minutes we were inside some punks smashed Ian's rear window and took all of my camera equipment. Everything that I've worked, earned, and hustled for in the past 10 years of my life vanished in less than 10 minutes. Not only did they take $5,000 worth of my equipment but Ian was looking at a $600 repair bill. After waiting for the cops for 2 hours, for them just to sweep our incident under the rug, we set off for home. When we pull up to drop of the birthday boy (Andrew) at his car, we notice it's missing. We lost track of time and his car was towed. Just as we thought things couldn't get any worse, Ian gets a call from his girlfriend to let him know that their family dog had just passed. Indeed, this was the most back-to-back devastating day.
Ian is a full-time student at SF Sate and is a Lyft driver on weekend nights. He needs his car fixed as soon possible in order to work. Andrew, is a grad student with a Marketing degree working as an assistant manager for Camper shoes and is just getting situated with his position both at work and at home. And for myself, well I moved to San Francisco with a dream of acheiving a film career. I go community college where I'm working towards a film degree. I also work full-time at a restaurant in downtown. This city is far too expensive for either of us three to recuperate what was taken from us. Therefore, we ask for your help, your voice, and your support.
Rey, Ian, and Andrew
