Traditionally the Sanity Savers were produced from unused footage and calming soundtracks featuring independent music artists. This past summer I found ourselves pinned down in a tent high up in the mountains during a lightning storm. It’s seriously an unnerving situation. Do I descend down the mountain in heavy downpour on very wet terrain, risk falling or being struck? Do I stay put in a tent surrounded by aluminum rods? Eventually I opted for the later, hoping the air mattress I was sitting on would isolate me from being grounded. Crazy as that sounds, I don’t think there was a real win situation.
Sitting there in the tent I decided to save my sanity and film the experience, which I think now actually feels more calm than we felt at the time.
