Thursday Getaway: Watch Denali

At this point in the week, we suspect you're in the mood to get out and enjoy the world outside of your computer screen, but it's Thursday, and you can't–yet. Don't despair! We've got just the thing to make you smile, daydream or draw inspiration from for your weekend, which is just around the corner.

This short film about man and his best friend is all at once lighthearted and funny, as well as dark and deeply emotional. Above all, it's a beautiful tribute to what it means to bond with another soul,  and a reminder that unconditional love transcends everything. Take eight minutes out of your day to watch the latest collaboration between producer Ben Moon, director Ben Knight and cinematographer Skip Armstrong of Wazee Motion Pictures. If you're about to press play, we'll make one last suggestion: only do so in a place where you're free (or comfortable enough) to weep openly.
