After It Went Unfinished for 10 Years, a Portland Made Documentary Took an Unexpected Turn
The meaningful, yet small story behind “Henry’s Hair” grew in magnitude when McCrea was in the final stages of making the documentary. “Henry’s Hair” went unfinished for almost 10 years, until McCrea decided to enter post-production in 2017. Shortly thereafter, he was diagnosed with terminal heart disease and given six months to live. So Portland’s film community rallied around McCrea to bring the project to fruition. Videographers, editors and sound designers all offered to help McCrea, free of charge.
