Today Ape to Gentleman bring you Nike‘s release of a new short movie by Casey Neistat ‘Mind Games’. Written years ago when Casey first started running, this 2.5 minute short explores the mind games runners face and the ideas one focuses on while the body is giving it all it has to keep them running; or while being committed to any other sport.

This film was commissioned to be made while he trained in NYC for the New York Marathon this year, to help celebrate the Nike way of showing creativity through sport. Casey carried a small HD video camera with him on runs for 3 weeks to shoot the movie and the music was done by Jordan Galland, a good friend and long time collaborator of Casey’s.
