Epicenter is a non-profit working in Texas to reduce "mandatory minimums" for offenders who commit felonies as minors. Many of the Texas "Second Lookers" are now in their 40s, having served over 20 years for crimes they committed as young as 14 years old. Texas has the harshest laws for juvenile offenders, many facing a minimum of 40 years before seeing parole. Epicenter seeks to overturn that in 2021. They needed a video that conveyed the most common question that Texas Second Lookers ask themselves, "If I could talk to my younger self, what would I say?" I served as the Creative Lead and Editor for this project.
