On the morning of February 25, 2000 a young man named Henry Stuart Matis drove to the Mormon Ward House in Los Altos, CA, placed a gun to his head and ended his life. This is his story.

Missa Solemnis or The Play about Henry is written by my friend Roman Feeser. He asked that I shoot and edit this teaser-trailer for his play opening on October 30th.

You do such great work, Eric. If I lived in NYC, I'd sure as hell go see the play.

The play looks compelling which speaks to your ability to put together a great trailer. I'm with Bil, I'd love to see this onstage.
I'm curious about the opening date though... Is it just coincidence that he's opening on what's commonly called "Devil's Night"?
