Ep. 508: Where we reveal our 'Secret Identities' Video
"A Scanner Darkly" is set in suburban Orange County, California in a future where America has lost the war on drugs. When one reluctant undercover cop is ordered to start spying on his friends, he is launched on a paranoid journey into the absurd, where identities and loyalties are impossible to decode. It is a cautionary tale of drug use based on the novel by Philip K. Dick and his own experiences. Like a graphic novel come to life, "A Scanner Darkly" uses live action photography overlaid with an advanced animation process (interpolated rotoscoping) to create a haunting, highly stylized vision of the future. The technology, first employed in Richard Linklater's 2001 film "Waking Life," has evolved to produce even more emotional impact and detail. Written for the screen and directed by Richard Linklater, the film stars Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey Jr., Woody Harrelson, Winona Ryder and Rory Cochrane.

We all have secrets. Some of us can live with ours. This is the short story of a young woman who can no longer live with her secret. A few drinks after work, a bicycle and a mistaken identity. Eventually, we all face our secrets. "Secrets" is my first short video/film ever. After nearly 25 years in Broadcasting, I decided to write, shoot and edit my own short videos. Spurred on by the short video contest "DVChallenge" at DVInfo.net, I shot a short dark video as my first creation. I was lucky enough to work for a broadcast equipment company a short time ago and was able to buy some great professional DVCam equipment, which I recently began to put to use. "Secrets" won 1st place in DVChallenge 2. I am particularly proud of this, as it was my first effort. Some could argue that 25 years in broadcasting helped and I would agree. On the other hand, in broadcasting, one person nearly never does all the jobs of writing, shooting, editing, DP, LD and so on. My videos to date have had a crew of exactly one, me. So far, I like it that way. As the complexity level in future videos rises, I will be seeking help for various roles. Also look for my even darker short called "Frame 37", created for DVChallenge 3. I hope you enjoy "Secrets". You can find out more information on what I do at http://www.DeepBlueEdit.com Thanks for watching, Sean McHenry
