A portrait of Magnus Walker, the rebel Porsche customizer who turned a hobby into an obsession, and an obsession into a successful business. From a workshop in downtown Los Angeles, Magnus obsessively harvests fragments from donor 911s, grafting them onto vintage frames to create one-off automobiles with the spirit of Ferdinand Porsche but an ethos entirely his own.
This film is about drive. It’s about the passion and creative drive of Kazunori Yamauchi, the architect behind Gran Turismo’s birth and breath-taking fifteen-year evolution. This film will trace his relentless willingness to challenge himself, to hold none of his past achievements sacred, and push beyond the virtual divide in his pursuit of perfection. Through the support of PlayStation, Kaz’s journey has forever changed the gaming and automotive landscape and in doing so, has redefined how we perceive the relationship between art, entertainment and culture.

Faded, Not Yet Gone
As Cole and his father, Joseph, push through the trying and monotonous life as farmers, they both battle with their own internal struggles. Cole questions whether this simple way of life is truly for him or not. Joseph picks up on his son’s complacency and worries he may lose his lead hand, leaving him alone to bear the farm’s workload. This meditative film explores finding our true purpose in life and if that’s something worth fighting for. All while touching on the relationship between us humans and mother nature as well as father and son. The film comes to a head when a family relic is revealed to Cole that vocalizes his internal struggles.
Growing up in the countryside, I have always been enamoured by the land – spending endless days getting lost in nature. The allure of a simple and honest life as a farmer working the land has never faded on me, albeit the idea is probably a bit romanticized in my head. In Faded, Not Yet Gone I wanted to explore the idea of someone who has fallen into the family tradition of farming but has had uncertainty creep in. I think this is a realization many people face: do I uphold my family’s heritage or do I have another calling out there? The film is intentionally simple at times allowing the viewer to experience the beauty of nature and appreciate the world around us. And in other times, I emphasize the grueling, strenuous, and tumultuous life that farming can be. Overall I wanted to create a cinematic slice of that life that plays on the age-old idea of finding one’s true purpose in life.
