New Doc from Optimus Director Hall

New Doc from Optimus Director Hall

It's been a long road spanning more than two years to bring this new documentary to the screen, but it was more than worth the ride for Logan Hall, and you can see why this minute as the film is newly released on Vimeo.

THIS IS NOT A TOY is a short documentary that chronicles the thrill, work and sacrifice that goes into racing RC cars. Shot over the course of two years, the film focuses on racers who competed in the Midwest Nitro Series. The film is the latest offering from Logan Hall, a Chicago-based filmmaker and commercial director repped by ONE at Optimus.

"For the uninitiated, it’s an introduction to the world of RC cars and off-road racing," Hall told SCREEN. "For racers, it’s a reminder for why you love the hobby (or sport, if you prefer)."

Hall's team included cinematographer Megan Donnelly of AbelCine. Hall produced, directed and edited the short film, which has already attracted more than 30,000 views online since its release.

And here it is, please enjoy THIS IS NOT A TOY:
