Well guys I want to tell you about Cameron Duncan. I discovered this amazing guy in the extras of The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King. Now, I want to explain a little bit about his life.
I warn you that it is a very sad story.
Cameron Duncan was a boy from New Zealand who loved softball and making films.
One day, when he was 15 or 16, the doctors detected an osteosarcoma. He was treated with chemotherapy and the cancer disappeared. But, one day, the cancer returned.
He made two amazing short films:
The first, DFK6498 is an awesome short where he compares the cancer with the prison.
In the second, Strike Zone, he knew he was dying and he wanted to make a short film about his favourite sport. This short is about the last wish of a boy who is dying. He wants to make a softball team that can win the league.
(The subtitles are in English because I can't find them in Spanish. I'll try to solve it)
Cameron died days after he finished filming this short film.
He died in 2003 at the age of 17.
Cameron has been an inspiration for many people in the world and the people of The Lord of The Rings too. He was the inspiration for the lyrics of the Oscar-Winning song "Into the West" for the film The Lord of The Rings: The Return of The King.
This story is so sad, but it's about a boy who even when everything wast lost, he kept doing what he wanted to do and did not let anything stop him. He wanted to make that last short film and overcame all the obstacles that the disease imposed and made that short film.
For this reason, I think it's a good idea to share this short film with you.
