"Believe" is a The Professionals vid by P.R. Zed. It is a character study of Ray Doyle. This vid premiered at ZebraCon in 2007.

Vidder's Note: "Thanks for the creation of this vid must go entirely to F.J. Bryan, who emailed me when she got the new Bravery album because she thought it had the perfect song for a Doyle vid. (Which is amusing, given that FJB is a firm Bodie fan.) I listened to the wee sample on iTunes, thought she was onto something, found the album on sale a few weeks later and grabbed it.

The vid itself follows Doyle's struggles with his job and the way it taps into his violent nature even as it preys on his conscience. In the end, though, the vid is about how Bodie is Doyle's "something to believe," the person who gives what he does meaning when meaning is hard to find."
