    Summary:
    Why do we decide to explore mountains, trails and the wilderness? Perhaps because "we can never have enough of nature" as Henry David Thoreau once described. The Ingenuous Choice features mountain runner Anton Krupicka exploring the wilderness of the mountains, racing 100 miles and reflecting on what makes mountain running essential to him.

  3. Told from the point-of-view of runners from all walks of life, the film explores the inspiration and motivation that modern cultures associate with running.

    On the surface, the reasons people run seem obvious; health, stress, competition to name a few. But what if there is a deeper, more intrinsic compulsion that connects people who choose to run for enjoyment regardless of genetic, ethnic, socioeconomic, religious or physical differences?

    Runners share an uncommon bond in today’s society, whether it’s through participation in the events or a simple ‘hey’ on an isolated nature trail. We aim to find out what it is.

    With breathtaking landscapes, high-profiles races and quirky tribal-like parades as the backdrop, we join hardcore and casual runners alike on their individual journeys to health and wellness, weight loss, triumph, freedom and companionship, with one goal in mind; to find out what moves them.

    Everyday more and more people are making running part of their daily routines and part of their lives. So we are setting out on a quest to ask as them just one simple question; What Moves You?

  4. 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, that 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 you're intentions, and who you have around you. This was an interesting project because we came into it relatively unscripted and without any real burdening expectations. I think that, coupled with just being with good friends, lent to some good karma. We landed in San Francisco and spent the next 3 days driving north and shooting what we saw along the way.
