1. 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.

  2. Pounding the tarmac through the seasons, a band of runners are brazenly challenged with intimate questions as they pace their routes. Liberated from responsibilities, their guards drop dramatically, releasing funny and brutally frank confessions, and weaving a powerful narrative behind the anonymous masses.

    A film by Matan Rochlitz & Ivo Gormley.

  3. This short documentary tells the story of one of the world’s most difficult and bizarre sporting events: The Barkley Marathons. This 100-mile footrace and its 60-hour time limit force athletes to run, crawl and climb an elevation gain equivalent to two treks up Mt. Everest. In nearly thirty years, only fourteen runners, out of over one thousand participants, have finished The Barkley.

    Directed, Edited and Filmed by Brendan Young
    Director of Photography: Isaiah Branch-Boyle
    Original Score by Keith Shacklett

  5. Ronnie Goodman may well be San Francisco's most unexpected half-marathoner. This is the story of why he runs.

    If you are inspired, please consider contributing to Ronnie's cause. He recently ran The Second Half of The SF Marathon to give back to the organization that helped him when he needed it most. hospitalityhouse.org/runronnierun.html

    Ronnie is also a painter, and his art can be seen at ronniegoodman.com.
