Beard Life


Quick stats about the movie

Al Doug’s last day with his beard before shaving it off for Movember.

Creative team

Writer: Al Douglas
Director/producer: Kyle Simpson

Filmmaker’s statement

“When Al Doug approached me with the idea, I thought it would be a great way to tell his story and hopefully shed some light on the Movember campaign that he was trying to raise awareness for.

The idea was fairly basic: just grab my camera (a Canon Rebel t2i at the time) and follow him around for the day up to the shave off.

It was my first real documentary-style shoot, outside of wedding films, so it was a great experience and I was super happy with the outcome.”
