    Human beings don’t always make rational decisions. But making irrational decisions is precisely what makes us human. These decisions, based on an impulse or a feeling, often lead us to those perfect moments when it feels great to be alive. "The Beauty of the Irrational" follows Ryan Sandes, a South African Ultra-Runner, as he returns to the Fish River Canyon to run the 5 day, 84km, Fish River Canyon Hiking Trail in the fastest time possible. He completed the run, self-supported, in amazing time of 6h57min! Directed by Dean Leslie Produced by Greg Fell Cinematography by Dean Leslie & Dale Hunt Edited by Dean Leslie Original music by Signpost Sound Additional Footage Greg Fell Craig Kolesky Supported by Salomon, Suunto and Velocity Sports Lab Special thanks Alu-Cab - www.alu-cab.co.za Signpost Sound - www.signpostsound.co.za African Extreme Promotions - www.africanextremepromotions.com Vanessa Haywood Ryan Sandes

        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. The music was written and produced specifically for this piece by Micah Dahl Anderson Shot and edited by Sean Michael & MP Cunningham Music by Micah Dahl Anderson Color and sound design by Wayne Nillson Produced by Kurt Hale Title by Davis Ngarupe Still photography by Weston Colton

          This is an edit of my favorite shots from a spec commercial I shot for my friends Ben and Jono. The commercial is going to be totally different than this, these are just my favorite clips extended much longer. The entire thing was shot with a Canon 7D This was my first time operating a glidecam, I was pleasantly surprised with how well it worked! Thanks to Troy Dickerson for letting us shoot on his 7D! I got the cool film burns for FREE from digitalcinemafoundry.com

                    Sarah Ridgway is a Welsh international runner specialising in mountainous terrain. Her love of gnarly conditions helped her secure the woman’s record for the classic Snowdon Horseshoe in a time of 1hr 43min. 'The key is to just do what you are passionate about and do it for the simple joy it brings you – if other rewards come out of it then accept them graciously but don’t let them be your driver – just let your true passions guide you and the rest will come. Infact after the horseshoe I felt so inspired and reinvigorated I raced quite a bit and had some of my best ever performances!' - Sarah Ridgway Sarah works as a guide in her business Run Snowdonia (www.runsnowdonia.co.uk), one of the premier guided running services in the UK. The business involves anything from taking people for scenic guided runs, a hard training session or instructing people on how to run safely in the mountains.

                      The title is a joke - this clip is so old, that when I made it in 1999, the year 2000 was still the future. I had just gotten a copy of Adobe After Effects and wanted to play with the masking tools, so I went with a few friends to a road on the RIT campus, set up a tripod, and recorded cars going by. I also recorded myself running into the road, and later I composited all that footage together. When it was finished I posted it to my website. This was one of my first videos, and one of the first "fake viral" clips to ever appear on the Internet. It has appeared on hundreds of websites and probably been seen millions of times.
