Blood Brother was built on of the sacrifices of many people. Personally, I sacrificed time, money, comfort and security. I think I even sacrificed a bit of my fading youth, as aging seemed to speed up over the course of production. But I can’t confidently call these things sacrifices in light of the true sacrifices made by the lives of those featured in Blood Brother.

My passion to make Blood Brother created a willingness in me to pay whatever price necessary in order to tell this amazing story. It cost me something, but I got something in return. It felt more like an exchange than a sacrifice. I believe a sacrifice is something that you truly don’t want to relinquish but you know you must.

I look at the life of my friend Rocky and I see true sacrifice. Even as I write this, I’m in India trying to keep step with his daily sacrifice. Looking back, I would gladly pay my price all over again to make Blood Brother. But it’s easy for me to say that because it cost others more than it cost me.
