Watch Pain is Temporary, Pride is Forever Online


I'd like to thank everybody who supported this film, from production to beyond its completion. The film was a wonderful experience for myself and everyone involved, and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to make it. I received a lot of support at every stage of production, from the people we filmed, production crew involved, funding bodies, right through to the people who purchased a copy of the DVD from here or

I have sold out of DVD stock and have decided not to renew, instead I would like to offer the film online for free. I hope everyone who wanted to watch the film, but was unable to purcahase a copy can now enjoy it. A big thankyou again, it's now time for me to think about my next project in life.


Josh Lee, Director.
