This is the first excerpt from our work on our upcoming film, Reality Capture. We had the good fortune of finding and collaborating with Jake Wells of Jake is a tattoo artist, a DIY drone builder and a family man, and possibly the world’s first Remote Control (RC) Christian Minister. While flying, crashing and repairing his homemade drone in the Pacific Northwest, Wells recounts the story of his techno-spiritual liberation from a life in which he felt remotely controlled by other forces, to one in which he builds and controls his own machines, that serve as metaphorical vehicles for his eternal soul.

Jake was so forthcoming and generous with his time that we ended up with enough material for a short video featuring him called Lessons on Leaving Your Body that we’ve screened in various international venues, and a lot more to be included in the full length Reality Capture film.
