Michael Fahey’s Lack of Sensible Quit | Inside “Westside vs the World” | S1 E6

April 11, 2018

Several years ago, Michael Fahey approached me with an idea. He wanted to make a documentary about Westside Barbell. I did my best to talk him out of it, but luckily I didn’t succeed. It took quite a while to come together, and it sorely tried his patience and stamina, but in the end his “lack of sensible quit” has produced an outstanding, (nearly) finished product.

Michael explains how his time editing the documentary “Forks Over Knives,” and a stop off at the NFL Network fueled his desire to produce his own project, how a conversation with a reality show producer let him to make contact with me, and how the crazy journey to make the film played out.
