Curry jumped back in, “You look for the common threads. Where is the heart of the movie?”

The two were aware they were jumping feet first into a bit of a controversy as various stakeholders within the city and county continue to make their cases for the relocation of the lighthouse to the city or to another location on Cape San Blas.

They had read about the controversies and part of their pitch in seeking the award to do the documentary was the relative detachment they had from California.

“It is our job to illustrate what people care about,” Curry said. “We were clear from the beginning that we saw ourselves as the objective party.

“The important takeaway for us is that people really care. It is more important to the story when the people really care about the subject.”

Long added, “It really makes our job easier.”

Curry said, “It is not our job to tell a story; it’s our job to find the story.”
