Additional Information

Can you make a movie while having mental illness? Bud Clayman is doing it.

Will making a documentary about your mental illness change your life? Maybe.

Mental illness interrupted his dream of a filmmaking career. Thirty years later, he's making the movie of his life. Bud Clayman is one of films' most unlikely heroes. This is a personal story with universal relevance—a wildly original documentary of pain and vulnerability, empowerment, and Bud's quest for belonging.

Throughout his youth, Bud's future was filmmaking. After college in Philadelphia, he headed to Hollywood in search of a break. Instead, he had a breakdown. As mental illness struck, it stuck. When distress and isolation set in, the diagnoses followed. For eight years, Bud lived in a therapeutic community.

Without waiting for his illness to vanish, Bud has reclaimed his quest as a filmmaker. As his camera chronicles the ups and downs of recovery, we also see the experience of what he calls "the fight inside my head." Behind the lens, a parallel journey unfolds as Bud the Director grapples with the challenges of making an incisive, highly personal documentary—a movie that he believes will transform his life.

When problems hit the fan, Bud sometimes feels defeated. More often, he draws strength and skills from therapy, humor, and relationships. Even so, he feels different, and the stigma of mental illness is fierce.

Meanwhile, directing this documentary film stretches Bud in ways that ultimately recast his quest. From the shadows of suffering, a portrait of imperfect courage emerges—a testament to acceptance, change, and hope.

The LA Times hailed OC87 as "uniquely inspiring." The New York Times called it "moving, penetrating" and The New York Post said, "it's easy to cheer his ultimate triumph."

This 2 DVD collector's edition includes over 45 minutes of additional footage and the documentary is closed captioned.

I find most films about mental illness are unbearably sad. This film-maker pokes fun at himself, his parents and the frustrations of those who try to work with him. There is a lot of "New York" humor that may not work in the Heartland. However, I found it delightful and remarkable that after many years of an inability to do anything, Bud Clayton put together a film that is eye-opening for anyone who knows nothing about mental illness and inspirational to anyone who may be struggling to regain balance after developing a mental illness.
I was wanting to educate myself on Bipolar, Asperger's, and Obsessive Compulsive disorders and ran across this film.

This film grows on the viewer quickly. It's very personable as it takes a look at the life of Buddy Clayton who suffers from some or all these disorders. The beauty of the film is that it let's someone on the outside journey with Buddy and enter Buddy's mind on a day to day basis. It's impossible for a disease free person to understand the mental thoughts of someone with these diseases without help from someone walking them through it as Buddy has.

I commend Buddy and his staff for producing a "dead on" film.

I do believe through Amazon Reviews and other reviews that this film (in time) will find a place in the mental health media as a MUST to be seen. I give it 1 star for the simplicity of the film, 1 star for covering the complexity of a disease, 1 star for honesty, 1 star for Buddy's bravery, 1 star for overall education! This is a... Read more
If you have experience with mental health or not this is a good film to get a bit of an inside look. Granted, not all people affected have the same symptoms or issues but Clayman is honest and open about what is going on in his head.
