2018 GOLD TELLY AWARD WINNER for BEST BRANDING CONTENT in WRITING, HUMOR and PEOPLE's CHOICE AWARD!!!

Over a year in the making, with 31 crew members, 47 actors, and 17 locations, this has been one of our more ambitious projects to date. Massive THANK YOUS to everyone involved!

Put together over the last year or so. Some great locations. Some great clients. Some great luck with the weather...

Music: Sigur Ros: Hoppipolla

Over two years in the making, many hundreds of hours of footage, and thousands of laps around the prison yard, we finally have a trailer! This is a beautiful, sometimes disturbing, account of the marathon run entirely inside the walls of America's most infamous penitentiary. I am proud to have been a part of this inspirational project, and to have gotten to know the filmmakers, coaches and inmates who make it all possible.

This PSA was written by my fiancée, Michelle during a 14 minute BART ride home. She intended to outline only a few key points but, using her own voice (she was a Foster Kid), ended up writing something that was super simple and beyond powerful. She read it to me as we walked home, and I knew immediately we had our script... We assembled a fantastic crew: Robert Caruso, the Director. Brian Benson, the Producer. I couldn't ask for a more talented and dedicated group folks. Massive thanks to everyone who worked on this. We made something we can all be proud of!!! Thanks you Stewart Foundation and Disney for making this happen.

3 cities, gorgeous locations, great team of filmmakers, and a ton of lans flairs...

Love the atmosphere in this piece. No lights. Shot from a Zodiac hand held with a Movi. No equipment was harmed... And the talent swam from the Farallon Islands back to San Fran (not for this spot, but still...)
