Recently I had the opportunity to direct a small app explainer commercial job. We had a nice tight crew of about eight people. My DP introduced me to our grip who was a real great guy.
We got to talking during the shoot and he decided to waive his fee if I could help him edit and fix a short documentary he shot on a hand made knife maker. I'm always looking to tell a good story so I said why the hell not.
A few months later we got the drive over to the studio. He told me his tales of trying to get this film out into the world and I let him know we could make it happen.
So here's the story of a world class hand made knife maker who's dealt with cancer for over twenty years. He used his life's obstacles to direct him on a path towards doing something he loves.
This is Staying Sharp.
