Steve Simonsen has begun making plans to produce a documentary about next year's 8 Tuff Miles.
The 16th annual event will be Feb. 25 and Simonsen hopes to cover it, as they say, like a blanket. He wants help. That's why he's posted on Facebook, "Looking for video camera operators for next year's" race. He'd like to find 20-25 camera people with their own HD cameras.
His plans for a documentar of the race, founded by Peter Alter, include using historical video and/or film of the race and its activities. So if you've got any from previous years, he'd like to know about it.
Simonsen made a career for himself doing world-class work in the Caribbean including his specialty, underwater photography. In the past few years, he's branched out into video documentaries.
"I just wrapped shooting on this year's Pine Peace School auction," he said. "First time I've shot it in HD."
