Well, it seems facebook has censored, banned, and completely removed my latest short film "THE JUMPER" due to the subject matter, and a myriad of other reasons. I think it is ridiculous, but will not appeal the decision, since youtube is my home for all my films, and so far they have been incredible in accepting the more risky type material, as long as you acknowledge if certain issues arise. My film is honest, real, personal, and it is truth. It baffles me. You find violence in other forms of media, GEARED towards children, and as long as there is a warning it is ok. How is this any different? People can choose not to watch, simply by not clicking play. But to still censor something like this to me is defeating the purpose of attempting to tell a story that I felt wasn't being told. Some people would rather keep the wool pulled over your eyes and shield you from the truth, no matter what freedoms we have in this country to express ourselves artistically. I think, if we are old enough to pay taxes, we are old and mature enough to decide what we can, and can't see without someone holding our hand and deciding for us.
I want to say thanks to youtube for continuing to respect that artistic freedom of myself and other artists, and not attempting to censor certain topics I have chosen to talk about in my short films. Let the people decide. It what makes this country - and world so great.
You can of course, still watch the film at my channel, as well as the alternate version.
