Baby Done Left Me — The Video

[vimeo w=400]
T he Story of a Man, his sick iMac (“Baby”), and the Apple Store Genius Bar that stands between them. Shot & Edited on Apple iMovie for a 2012 iPad. Thanks to random teenage girl at mall food court who photographed me next to my empty iMac box, and to friend Gretchen Mollers, who not only ferried me several times to the Apple Store Pioneer Place several times, but also did principal photography outside and in the Apple Store. Shot in & around Portland, Oregon, August 2012.

Psssst! — If you want the more technical, less funny-ha-ha info on what it took to recover my iMac from a networked Time Machine Back-up, go to this post, here.
