Mind Games

I haven’t blogged a whole lot because I’ve been in one of those moods where I don’t want to be on the computer.

But I will recap everything sometime later today.

For now though I want to share a video that is extremely awesome.

Alexandra Langenfeld from Syndicate Media Group emailed me yesterday with this:

“Hi Samantha,

Hope you're well! Just wanted to give you heads up in case you were interested about Nike's recent release of Casey Neistat's new short movie 'Mind Games'. Written years ago when Casey first started running, this 2.5 minute short explores the mind games runners face and the ideas one focuses on while the body is giving it all it has to keep them running; or while being committed to any other sport. This film was commissioned to be made while he trained in NYC for the New York Marathon this year, to help celebrate the Nike way of showing creativity through sport. Casey carried a small HD video camera with him on runs for 3 weeks to shoot the movie and the music was done by Jordan Galland, a good friend and long time collaborator of Casey's.
"I don't race to see who's the fastest I race to see who has the most guts. -Prefontaine"
The video can be viewed  on on YouTube at, some screenshots have been attached. Enjoy!

About Casey Neistat
Casey Neistat is a runner and filmmaker who lives in NYC.  He currently has a show on HBO titled 'The Neistat Brothers'.
Casey was born in 1981. He grew up in Gales Ferry, Connecticut and went to Ledyard High School. In 1999, the imac DV came out. This was the first computer that allowed consumers to edit video. Casey got a camera and imac and figured out how to make movies. He never went to film school or anything like that.”


Here’s the video, or you can click the link up top.

Hope everyone has a great day!!
