"Eric was a very driven and passionate individual," Criss said. "As long as I've known him, he was always seeking to do good for others. He wanted to make the world a better place, especially for the gay community."
Criss said Borges had intended to use the video for applications to film school, but hadn't gotten around to it yet.
"He had so much talent in him," Criss said. "He was a visionary."
Criss said Borges was a big fan of Lady Gaga and that his favorite song off of her new album was the inspiring "Edge of Glory."
"He loved her so much. That was probably his role model," Criss said. "He often quoted her. He was very passionate about her."
