Filmmaker’s statement

While I’m Here | The Legacy Project is part of a series of videos that profile living legacies while they’re still doing what they do best … turning life into legacy.

I decided to start this project after missing out on the chance to tell the story of a man from my hometown who dedicated his life to helping others. That man’s name was Frank Dymock. For years, Frank opened his garage to the public and sharpened skates free of charge. He wouldn’t accept a dime. He was an icon in the place where I grew up, and I always wanted to tell his story while he was still here.

Regretfully, I let time pass and Frank passed away before I had the chance to tell his story. This project is dedicated to him and to countless others who live selflessly and truly leave a legacy, forever impacting the lives of the people lucky enough to cross their paths.

    Hello Brent
    I saw you on the news today and would like to commend you for highlighting beautiful stories of people who selflessly and truly impact people’s lives. I would like to recommend a childhood friend Jillian Haslam who takes care of the less fortunate in India. If you google her you will get see a lot more of her work which may interest you to have a word and perhaps use her work as a project. I’m sure you will be delighted to connect with her. We consider her as the second Mother Theresa of Calcutta. I hope you will reach out to her. Thank you.
