Flyfishing for Florida Keys Tarpon on Super 8

Most of the ocean’s wide breadth of life escapes our eyes. Think about that. We miss most of what the ocean produces: it escapes us, our grasp, our understanding, quietly sinking under humanity’s radar.

Bryan Janiczek, a friend, filmmaker, fishing buddy, and guide (and at one point coworker and roommate), attempted to capture it in his new film, “Where Dreams Go.” A cataloging of a typical day of flyfishing in the Florida Keys channeled completely through Super 8 film. It would seem, to me, an inefficient way to go about it. A day, a fish, a story. No sound, no re-dos, just a live performance of life in front of the camera. It’s up to Bryan to get it right the first time.
