Here is my first serious attempt at filmmaking. Drawing on a Dream, follows the life of Jerry Lee "Duff" Dorrough from Ruleville, Mississippi. Produced as part of the Barefoot Workshops in Clarksdale, Mississippi in September, this piece went viral after Duff collapsed and was taken to the hospital in Jackson with serious health issues. We had 3,000 views the first week and like to think it produced enough good karma to carry Duff through the crisis. He lived another year before passing away in October 2012. We miss him every day. My thanks to my partner Susan Allen Liles, and workshop leaders Chander Griffin, Alison Fast, and Teddy Symes. Enjoy.
