The Circle - A Documentary Series On Cancer Survival

Produced and directed by Chris Layhe, shot, edited and color grading by Chris Layhe and CLAi, executive producers Jim Louderback and Terry Ballantyne.

The Circle was an extremely personal project for CLAi to produce, featuring Stephanie Layhe – Chris’ wife. It is a discussion about the reality of living with cancer, an opportunity to share tips and techniques for making it easier, a way to show others that they are not alone… a vehicle for hope. A very demanding technical one-off documentary shoot, as well as a very emotional one for us all, it was built, lit and shot in a single day with 16 cameras: 3 RED One MXs, Canon 5D MkII, Canon 7D, 2 GoPros and 8 laptops. This video is just 15 minutes of an hour and a half of intensely revealing conversation and advice.
