While Wally Pfister is currently shooting his feature-length directorial debut “Transcendence,” it goes without saying he has plenty of experience behind the camera. Of course, he’s been a longtime collaborator with Christopher Nolan, lensing all of the director’s films since “Memento,” and before that, Pfister cut his teeth as a TV news cameraman. But that’s not all he’s done.
Back in 2010, the year before he’d win an Oscar for his work on “Inception,” Pfister dropped a quaint little 5-minute short film/promo entitled “Good Run.” Made for Discover Boating, an industry organization to promote recreational boating, the spot aims to capture the feeling of a lifetime of memories that can be found on the water. It’s a little sappy (the song, “The Sleepless Sailor” by Kate Rusby is a bit much), but it’s nicely edited and effective overall and mostly just an interesting little curiosity in Pfister’s CV. Anyway, give it a spin below. [Websleuths]
