First a confession. I have a bit of a man crush on Andrew Hida. A bit. He's one of the most talented interns with whom I've had the pleasure of working. I remember a particular screening with him, when we were showing Brian a piece we'd been working on for weeks. Andrew had helped organize thousands of images and hours of video. He'd also edited one of the sections in the project. Brian watched the piece silently, then he said, this section is really great. It was, of course, Andrew's. He didn't cop to the truth so I did for him.
So that's Andrew. And Follow My Steps is his thesis.
It's everything I like about the guy. It's honest and intimate and funny and just good.
One last confession: I sat on his thesis committee along with Bruce Strong and Seth Gitner. It was one of the best decisions I made this year.
Watch it. And watch out for Andrew. You'll be seeing a lot of him.
