Gold Doesn't Shine on Everything

The first scene in our extended documentary, we stumbled on this lucky two-minute shot. A couple jocular runners were giving us an earful about wanting to dunk like an NBA player. Meanwhile, a bunch of 4-minute milers stepped up to the line drawn in the dirt track. Asking a “piki-piki” (swahili for motorcycle) driver to give me a ride while I filmed the runners, we immediately spooked them into running a 55-second first lap. Somehow the camera remained steadier than my beating heart.
