More than a gambling man

PSA: Buy Local!

Don’t Sweat It

Here is the original assignment.

Our lives are full of stress: deadlines are always approaching, and work still needs to be done.  We feel obligated to complete what we’ve committed too, or else we’d feel terrible having broken that commitment.

Without further ado….

After a long and…arduous journey the Don’t text and Drive spot I’m affectionately (and creatively) calling “Forget” is now in video form. There were countless snafus and issues but in the end I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. I could tweak it forever. That’s the …
