Here’s a little behind the scenes look at one of our many drives to Deadwood. Matt and I had the pleasure to work alongside Maximilian Länge, a German foreign exchange student here at the U of O. Not only is he invaluable to our team, but he is a hell of a fun time to be around. He leaves America in a couple weeks and plans to go into sportswriting back in Germany. When he’s not out making kick ass multimedia pieces, you can find him at Matthew Knight arena watching basketball, or somewhere around campus saying his favorite word in english: absolutely.
Story Details: John Motherfucker
For the past few weeks, a couple team members and I have drove to Deadwood, Oregon to spend time with a man who lives and farms in the middle of a forest. His name is Johnny Sundstrom, and back in the ’60s he was better known as John Motherfucker (at least in the Lower East Side of New York). We are producing a film about how he got here, his connection to his land, and overall, his meaningful relationship with the forest. He believes the Oregon rain forests changed his life, and we are attempting to capture that feeling. Here are a few photos of our journey, as well as some details of Johnny’s life (thank you Matt Leslie for taking these beautiful photos).
This has been a busy week, but I have plenty to write/post in these next few days. I’m excited to share what I’ve been up to with you all.
The sun finally showed today after a week or so hiatus. I had to snap some pictures of the newly organized room.
One thing is certain: I’m going to miss this loft when it’s time to move in September.
Playing this video time and time again on a rainy, Eugene Thursday.
