The production team McFarland and Pecci have created a short form documentary, Rungs in the Ladder, about CONVERGE frontman/Deathwish Inc. co-owner, Jacob Bannon.
In the film, Bannon reflects on formative events in his life and his continuing commitment to creation rather than destruction. A commitment that, he explains, is fueled as much by anger as a desire to create a legacy that inspires.
Check out the film:
