Above Summit: The Anchor Down - "Earn the Sunset"
This short follows the story of two amazing runners as they compete in the Anchor Down Ultra Marathon, an annual 100-mile race across Rhode Island's scorching waterfront. This was a really fun and challenging short to edit, because originally the plan was to capture footage of the runners training and then competing in the actual race. However due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2020 Anchor Down Ultra was cancelled! It was a lot of fun working with Above Summit and the folks at Anchor Down as we figured out a way to tell a compelling story using a mix of interviews, commercial b-roll, and archival footage from past races.
