Last summer, my filmmaking partner, Dom Hilton, met a very interesting person while on vacation. So interesting, that he felt that he had to document the man’s life in some small way. With no gear available to him, Dom took a real DIY approach and built a tripod with which to mount his iPhone for filming. He then took the footage home and cut together a micro-documentary about Captain Jerry, a Garifuna fisherman who sleeps on beaches and escapes shark attacks. Dom asked me for some music to drop into the piece, so I whipped up a short bed. For some reason, I was feeling “harps” with the aquatic opening segment.
