A little over a year ago, film maker Tim Jeffreys decided to follow his passion. A life long runner and fan of the sport, Jeffreys quit his job at an insurance company, moved to Flagstaff and took a job with Greg McMillan. You may have seen some his videos with the McMillan Elite on their lead up to the US Marathon Trials.
Jeffreys has also been working on a new project which was announced today, a full-length documentary featuring marathoner Ryan Hall called ’41st Day’. The film which has been in production since early 2012 will follow the US marathoning phenom as he builds towards the Olympic Games in London.
“The fact that he’s allowed us to film every aspect of his life is incredible.” Jeffreys has been given complete access to Hall, filming workouts, one-on-one interviews and Hall’s life off the track.
“Our goal is to tell the story of not only Ryan Hall the runner, but Ryan Hall the man,” said Jeffereys.
In order to complete the production, Jeffreys and his crew need your help and have started a Kickstarter project. Contributors to the ’41st Day’ can receive everything from a copy of the DVD to a complimentary flight & seat at the premiere to an Executive Producer credit for the film.
