A micro documentary, exploring patient car enthusiast Jim Jones' 22 year journey restoring a 1957 Jaguar Mark 1.

While visiting with my wife's family my father-in-law, Jim Jones asked if I would bring out my camera to take some photos and video of his recently completed 1957 Jaguar Mark 1. I was happy to oblige, but also took the opportunity to try something I've never done before. Make a documentary. Jim had been working on that car for as long as I've known him. He's an interesting, articulate guy, and I knew from the serendipitous stories that I'd heard about the car and his scavenging for parts that this would be an interesting story to tell.

The shoot was improvised on site with only available light. No crew, no lights, only a monopod.
