Darren Jernigan: The Right Thing

Four years ago Darren called me on Election Day and told me a story. Two years ago in the studio, I asked him to retell the story. I turned it over to my team, explained what I wanted and let them do their thing. The creative process is at times more passive than you might think. Darren told the story. A talented man set the lights and filmed it. A talented team edited it, mixed the audio and created the graphics to support the story. I think I like it so much because I was merely an observer to all of that. The power and beauty of this short film tells a story that transcends politics.
