Powerful lyrics, a beautiful range of colors and a profound message. These elements conform a truly epic masterpiece in the body of a short film, curated and directed by Decora Sandiford and Rob Mostransky. An almost mystic blend between spoken word, inspiring beats and monochrome imagery is what defines this short film accompanied by the song which describes how we can find ourselves staring at the very path that will lead us to personal freedom as we walk the long way home.
Long Way Home is a look into the life of an artist journey to find meaning in his or her work. The difficulties of trying to discern between judgement and fear, failure and freedom and simple right and wrong, leads an artist on a emotional roller coaster where the boundaries of safety and security are erased. Through their travels they realize that the longest road is the path between the heart and the mind. Yet, the mere thought of the unknown become home to an abundance of creative works and endless possibilities.
I chose to have this shot on a Leica SL because I knew with the right camera person it would produce high quality results. The SL’s has a light weight body and sleek design that makes it easy to handle and its durability allowed us to shoot in places under conditions we wouldn’t normally shoot in.
