For Immediate Release

San Diego, CA (April 18, 2016) — Robert Randall Productions announced today that they are casting elite, professional and semi-professional athletes for their upcoming documentary film and large format photography book featuring extreme athletes from around the US and Internationally.

“Direct Experience” will follow each athlete through they’re training regimen, physical and mental preparation and culminate in a dramatic visual profile combining video and still photography. “We are looking moments of peak experience… flow, those moments when an athlete is 1000% invested in their sport and nothing, literally nothing has their attention except the task at hand” said Direct Experience creator Robert Randall.

Announcements with updated imagery and video will posted on the following social media as the project progresses offering athletes additional opportunities to promote their individual brands.

I’ve had an idea for a documentary film and book project floating around in my head for over a decade now.  For whatever reason, Direct Experience has never come to fruition. Either I was too busy with other projects, the money or the resources weren’t readily available or I was just distracted and ended up putting it back on the shelve.

This feels like the right time to make this happen so I am going to chronicle my progress here on my blog and on social media as a way to capture all of the processes, fits and starts, craziness and drama that I foresee putting this together and share it with you.  There are two key reasons for doing this:

1) I want to be able to look back and see just what made this work (or fail) and use it as a learning experience for the next project.


2) Use it as a way to keep my feet to the fire this time.  I learned a long time ago that making a public commitment is key to keeping my promises to myself.

I hope you’ll comment and make suggestions along the way so this becomes a “collaborative” project.  So to start off I need help with two items.  I am casting professional and semi-professional athletes as the key subjects of this project.  Any discipline will do.  It can be extreme athletes such as rock climbers or base jumpers or technical athletes such as tennis players or golfers and anything in between.  If you are an athlete interested in being part of this project or if you can recommend someone please email us at production@robertrandall.com.

Secondly, I am looking for a “co-producer” with a background in screenwriting and script development.  I am not a writer (which is likely quite evident by now), so I need someone to help co-produce this project with the skills that I just don’t have. Again, please email production@robertrandall.com with any suggestions.

So here goes… the first rough, incomplete, top of mind pre-production notes I made this morning over my first cup of coffee.

I hope you’ll join me on my journey…
