more details:

Tim Halperin spent several months on American Idol making it all the way to the top 24 with his vocal & music skills. After being voted off in March he wasn't about to styop pursuing music. He approached Joe Childress & myself to produce/direct a music video for his upcoming single, "The Last Song." Following the success of our last venture together (the She Runs music video reached over 100,000 views in its first month) we were ready to go bigger and better. We raised over $8,000 through and plotted out a cinematic dream-like video that would continue to keep Tim Halperin in peoples minds long after American Idol had claimed its victor.
