JUMP

JUMP - A film for anyone that's looked suicide in the face and lived to tell the story. In post production. Jump is the story of Ed, a normal guy struggling with average problems. When Ed decides he can’t live with himself any longer, he goes to jump off a bridge. But in the act, he realizes he is not one man - he is two. He is the man that wants to die and the man that wants to kill him. His thoughts appear in the form of a man named THOUGHT. These two men have a conversation on the bridge battling out his fate. An allegory for our common human experience with pain and depression. This film takes place in the moment before a man jumps off a bridge. But the man, the bridge, the circumstances and even the suicidal thoughts are just an allegory for our common human experience with hardship, depression and the need to talk to somebody about our deepest thoughts.

Ed takes a long walk to a bridge and has a battle over his fate with his worst enemy - his own thoughts. The story is an allegory of the id, the ego and the super ego. The film is for anyone that has looked suicide in the face and lived to tell the story.
 
This is a clip from the film. Although I hesitate to put it on the internet because the film was intended to spark conversation upon viewing. For each screening of the film, the music is stripped from the soundtrack and performed live by an artist. The film is also accompanied by discussion about mental health and suicide.
