For the past 11 years, the Ride for AIDS Chicago has raised millions of dollars for TPAN (Test Positive Aware Network) which provides services for those living with HIV and AIDS as well as testing for the infection.
This year myself and Akin Girav followed Avery Adams and Bryan Hauhe as the couple made the two-day, 200 mile trek for the first time, capturing on film as they traversed physical and emotional highs and lows while occasionally getting on each others nerves!
When I was asked by Richard Cordova, from the Test Positive Aware Network, to help him with a film to promote the Ride for AIDS Chicago, I couldn’t help but to say yes. We met some amazing people along the way and here are some of their stories.
I recently set up a Vimeo account to showcase the professional HD music videos and TV commercials I directed over the past year. Please check them out and let me know what you think!
On their own, Chicago-based Marshall Titus and John Gress each have an impressive bag of tricks.
