This is my submission for the 89x in 30 Seconds video competition. Since the contest guidelines stipulated that the commercial must be exactly 30 seconds, I wasn't able to include proper credits, so I'm going to do that here.

Dad - Bill Aksel
Son - Trevor Latshaw
Production Assitant - Matt Weiner
Photoshop Wizard - Josh Band
Written, Shot and Cut - yours truly

The man who played the Dad, Bill Aksel, is also a well-rounded artist. Check out his website here: http://www.williamakselart.com/

And a very special thanks to Brian and Detroit Comics on Woodward in Ferndale (http://www.detroitcomics.com/) for letting me take over the place for a couple of hours. That place is really the coolest comic book store in existence. If you're tired of feeling overwhelmed by cluttered comic book stores who seemingly have their whole inventory falling off the shelves and into your face, this is the place for you. It's very clean and organized. And I'm pretty sure you can find whatever you're looking for.

Also, special thanks to my Dad and Sue for pulling Trevor out of school early for my video.

Thanks to CCS for letting me use their lights, too.

And last, but not least, thanks to Jonna for really helping me get the story completely fleshed out, for helping me with some music decisions, and for keeping me motivated.

All of the music is royalty free except for the last song. The last song is Linkin Park (copyright music used as stipulated in 89x's contest rules and FAQ). The full res version of this video looks really nice and ready for broadcast. The youtube upload really brought the quality down a couple notches.
