A Little Film About Focus and Reason
Sean Michael/MP Cunningham
Grant Davis is the runner and voice of the film.
He’s also probably the smartest friend that I have.
He can find meaning to just about everything. If he decides to do something, he’ll do it right, and then he’ll tell you all about why it matters.
I was stoked to team up again with my good friend MP Cunningham to shoot this little film as he always has amazing ideas that make things a million times better.
Sometimes while shooting, I think you can be so overwhelmed and distracted by not only what you see with your eyes but also by what you hear and smell and taste. It’s hard to actually know how to capture what’s in front of you.
Yet there are other times when the complete opposite is true and everything you sense seems to just ease itself into an image. I think a lot of it has to do with your intentions, and who you have around you.
We came into it relatively unscripted and without any real burdening expectations. I think that, coupled with just being with good friends, it all lent to some good karma.
We landed in San Francisco and spent the next 3 days driving north to Arcata and shooting what we saw along the way…
