MY TYPE (feat. Yung Baby Tate)

Originally, I wanted to film this in 2020 to be the official version of PENNY. The pandemic made that much less possible. I made the decision to combine some videos that I filmed in 2019 to tell another story, but it was important to still present this. The ten page script above is a companion to the musical short film that's been released.

 

What I wanted to convey more than anything with this script is the same message that BURGUNDY had. To heal from a loss, you have to address it and work through it. Be kind to yourself, but be honest as well.

It's time to stop running.
