Video portrait of filmmaker, artist, author and actor Aaron Caine on why he left Harrisburg, PA (via Tuscon, AZ) to travel in a VW bug to Los Angeles. Aaron talks about needing to 'do what it is that you do' in terms of creativity, even if you have to work a 9-5 job, handling criticism for not fitting in to the "cookie-cutter mold," turning 40, and on being your own person.

Featuring Aaron Caine and his dog, Foxy.
