"Briefly Describe"

For your viewing pleasure, an educational short film I wrote, produced and directed for Aspen Publishing. "Briefly Describe" documents the day Alex is scheduled to appear in court. Alex is paralyzed from the waist down as a result of a car accident two years prior.

"Briefly Describe" from James Huffman on Vimeo.



This vignette was part of a series of video lessons in Tort Law. This video was also a client favorite...

"I wasn't sure what I would think of the Day in the Life video but that might be favorite of all.  There were certain creative, subtle elements that floored me.  I loved the annoying alarm in the background, and the discussion on the radio (regarding shoes, I believe) while the man struggled to move about his bedroom added great irony.  But then showing his destination at the courthouse being asked if he could describe a typical day in his life was classic."

Behind the scenes "factoid:" The actor in this episodes is John Harpster. John and I actually went to the same high school in Ridgewood, NJ. We don't hang out that much in LA. We don't hang out ever in LA... but we stay in touch via Facebook... so when I was casting for this role, he popped into my head... always happy happy to hook up an RHS alum... so I sent him an email... fortunately he was available... and the rest is history.... if you consider my little educational video "History."
