“Earlier this year I boarded a plane bound for Europe. With no firm plans, I was able to freely roam, discovering new places and meeting new people. One of these people was Mathieu Le Lay, a French adventurer and filmmaker, and someone who’s work I’ve followed on Vimeo for quite a while. After hearing I was in London, he very kindly invited me to come and explore France with him, to which I keenly accepted. It’s times like this I really love the internet, and more so Vimeo, connecting two people with a similar love of filmmaking from opposite sides of the earth. It was really great getting to know Mathieu, hearing about his work and creativity, and seeing his passion and love for what he does. While adventuring in the French Alps near his current home in Annecy, and exploring his home town of Brittany, I turned on my camera and started to shoot. I didn’t really know what I was making, but inspired by Mathieu’s connection with nature and the wild, and myself in awe of the beautiful landscapes, I continued shooting. Things began to evolve, the final result being this short film.”

 

Words by MATHIEU LE LAY, inspired by “Stillness Speaks” by Eckhart Tolle, writings from Wayne Dyer, and Albert Espinosa.
