First teaser for my new short documentary, Be Here Forever.

Brandon Goober, a musician and farmer, has recently learned that the farm which has been in his family for generations is soon to be sold. Challenged, but not deterred by this harsh truth, he’s turned to the land on which he was raised to learn what it means to live with permanence and meaning. 

The music in this teaser is an original song by Brandon.

This is what happened.
