In a continuation of Saucony’s “Seeker Series,” Whitehouse Post Editor Brandon Porter and the visual effects pros at Carbon VFX were tapped by agency Mechanica to create an inspiring short film featuring Chef Eduardo Garcia. Lensed by Persuade & Influence directing duo CO.LAB, the piece delivers stunning visuals of natural landscapes and an uplifting message about finding one’s inner strength.
Garcia, who lost his left arm in a hiking accident in 2011, demonstrates his passion for both cooking and running in this heartfelt film. By meditating on these passions daily and integrating them into nature, he is ultimately able to discover his unique recipe for life and encourages others to follow suit.
