Meet brothers Rich & Jay Laru from St. Louis, MO.
The one word that best describes Rich's life today is "Ambition."
The one word that best describes Jay's life today is "Alive."
If Rich could change one thing in the world he would "change where he is currently living and move to L.A." The way he would make this change would be to work hard and meet the right people.
If Jay could change one thing in the world he would "change how people view the world." The way he would make this change would be to open their minds to see things differently.
One year from today, Rich would want to be living in L.A. and working on his television show called NdustryTV.
One year from today, Jay would like to remain focused while going to school, become the best cinematographer who looks at life from the perspective of a wide angle lens rather than a narrow lens.
I met Rich and Jay as I walked down the stairs at Oak St. They were filming the surfers on their last day in California before heading back home to St Louis tomorrow. We immediately caught eyes as most photographers and filmmakers do. As storytellers behind the lens, we are curious to hear each others stories and talk about our gear.
Rich and Jay are filming on the Canon 5D Markiii with the 70x200mm lens with a shotgun mic, I think it was the rode mic. This is the dream set-up for documentary filmmakers.
These guys are full of energy, ambition and an eagerness to live life to the fullest! Their love for film-making and storytelling are contagious.
I'm a big fan of the Laru brothers and I believe they will achieve their dreams! You can watch Rich and Jay in action on their website http://ndustrytv.com/
