running in time
The result is something that surprises me each time I watch it. It doesn’t leave me with this feeling of euphoria or satisfaction that I imagined it might. I don’t find myself getting lost in each shot, dreaming about that almost synthetic feeling of a runner’s high. Maybe because I’m too close to knowing exactly how I felt during that segment along the boardwalk, or the late evening shot on the causeway in the pouring rain. Maybe it’s because I’m listening to the track with a critical ear, wishing I’d approached the recording differently. It could also be the critical eye with which I consume all films these days, struggling to shut off my work brain and just enjoy the piece of art. But it creates a new feeling I’ve never experienced in watching a video.
In the end, I’m very proud to see running, music, and filmmaking come together in one piece. I’m always excited to see the latest running videos that share other people’s stories, brands or products.
