Thanks for posting this link.

This looks like a fine, well crafted and inspiring documentary.

I'd love to find out what lenses Sean Nix used with the C300 and also how he handled the sound. Either way it looks beautifully filmed. But what really stands out is the level and quality of access and the relationship that the filmmakers developed with Sam, the subject of the documentary and his family.

I guess those of us in the UK will have to wait for it to be broadcast here, maybe it will be released on one of the channels on Sky TV and I notice it might be available on an Apple Tv Box.

Im starting to see lots of websites with the video backgrounds like that. They are pretty cool.

Just read in the news that Sam Berns passed away Friday.

Below is an inspirational TED Talk that Sam gave in 2013.
