While I was in college I noticed a lot of dudes were growing beards. I guess from a puberty standpoint this makes sense, the super awkward years of high school are mostly over and you're coming to terms with being an "adult" and being a man, so why not grow a beard. Plus in college, for the most part, you feel like you can do whatever you want.
This still didn't make much sense to me, so I decided to make a mini documentary about it, or at least ask some dudes some questions about their beards and see what I learn. I focused on talking to young guys that were growing their first or close to first beard.

By making the documentary I did learn a decent amount about beards, mostly that guys thought they were cool and by having a beard it would make them cool. Or it was just out of laziness, which is also valid. I'm still not really into them. Now I'm with a dude who has a crazy huge beard, but at least it's for a good cause: art.


  1. I am so glad that I can finally share this beardumentary with the internet, but it makes me worry that some other videos that you made might surface...

  2. Don't worry about that, I have no plans of putting all those videos online. You know the ones I'm talking about.

  3. so funny how into the 'staches the dudes are!
    thank god white t-shirt guy came in and set the record straight.

  4. I was a hater in this film, but now I have a very dense beard which I grew on a month long mountaineering expedition and decided to keep. Sequel material?

    Claire, I was really excited to see this finally! It was highly entertaining.
