Danny Peña invited the crew to his home in Miami where Gamertag Radio was founded. They expected to get a terrific interview with a leader in his field (and they did), but they never expected to become part of the family as well. On the day of the shoot, Danny’s family was all over the house awaiting the crew’s arrival, and Danny’s father, José Daniel Peña even catered in food for the crew! The filmmakers experienced what was far and away the warmest hospitality of any leg of the shoot.
On the way to the hotel that night, the crew decided to get gas even though they had a quarter tank left. Moments after they pulled into the station, the car that had been behind them for over a mile rear-ended another car at the next light. Had they not stopped when they did, that car would have hit theirs, destroying all the filming gear they’d packed in the back of their car.
Chris took it as a sign that guardian angels were watching over them, and the movie needed to be seen by others!
During the filming of Christy Haussler’s segment in the Florida Keys, Christy generously offered the crew a ride on her boat. Willie Harper decided to jump overboard and hang off the front of the boat. Suddenly realizing he is no longer in his twenties, Willie struggled mightily to climb back in. The sight of him worming his way back on the boat gave Christy and the crew a great laugh.
