Project: TIGER


A Film by Eric Latek

Music Score: Mauro Colangelo

Tiger Trailer 2 focuses on the connection between Gary and Christina. There was a beautiful voice of inspiration by Christina to Gary that I captured just as the two were about to have a workout session for Gary’s injury. It’s the driving force for this trailer. As always, I stress that even though I am applying a more cinematic technique in terms of look and feel to this documentary, everything you see is real, in a purely passive/verite aesthetic. I have poured my filmmaker’s soul into this story for the past 13 years, with a few more years to go. However, for now, hope you enjoy the trailer.
